Construction Trades Hall Demo Day

Construction Trades Hall Demo Day
Halifax, Nova Scotia

Thursday, March 19, 2020

The NSCSC Trades Exhibition Hall is a unique venue that offers students, job seekers, employment counsellors, teachers, community groups, and the general public an opportunity to experience construction occupations in a tangible way. Developed in partnership with industry and the Province of Nova Scotia, the Hall features 14 interactive exhibits (booths) where visitors can learn about construction careers by participating in a variety of hands-on demonstrations and speaking with industry professionals at different stages of their careers.

Ever wonder what a career in the construction/trades would look like? Here’s your chance to check it out. Acadia First Nation will be sponsoring a day for you to come to the trades hall and check out the exhibits. We are targeting youth from Grades 9 – 12 but open to other community members up to the age of 30. Participants must be an Acadia First Nation band member or band members’ children. Youth aged 18 and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. We will travel to Halifax on the 18th and stay at a nearby hotel and proceed to the exhibition hall the morning of the 19th, spend the day checking out the exhibits and travel back home. Transportation will be on your own with a travel/meal allowance provided. Accommodations will also be provided. Contact us if you are not able to provide your own transportation.

Space is limited so register early.

Please register no later than NOON on February 14th at 902-685-2956

Fishing Master Class 4

A’paqt (Oceans): Building Bridges for Women and Indigenous Peoples in Marine Training

The focus of the A’paqt project directly aligns with Transport Canada’s Marine Training Program-Southern
objective, project categories and both target groups (women and Indigenous people) as it aims to facilitate access to and awareness of marine training and employment by underrepresented groups through a variety of offerings.
The goals of the A’paqt project stem from NSCC’s engagement with women and Indigenous people over several years. From these discussions, we have come to recognize the significant financial, social and cultural barriers that women and Indigenous people face when pursuing post-secondary training and employment.
NSCC aims to address these barriers and the unique needs of underrepresented groups through the A’paqt project, ultimately resulting in greater participation in marine training and careers.
