STEP (Skilled Trades Employment Program)
The British Columbia Construction Association's Skilled Trades Employment Program (STEP) was launched in 2006. From the start, STEP has focused on finding motivated, trained, and ready-to-work candidates for construction employers with jobs to fill.
We’re unique because we start with the job, then find candidates that are a great fit. In this way, the BCCA has made STEP an integral part of BC’s construction sector, and advanced thousands of British Columbians along a rewarding career path in the skilled trades. Whether we’re connecting BC employers to entry-level workers or new apprentices, we’re here to build skills, careers, and opportunities.
We’ve grown. More than 10,000 individuals have been connected with new career opportunities through STEP.
Today, a network of 11 STEP offices throughout the province connects employers and job seekers every day.
