Skills Ready would not be possible without the support of our community of supporters and partners.
THE CONSTRUCTION FOUNDATION
In 2012 the Construction Foundation of BC was launched by a group of dedicated construction professionals to act as a mechanism for industry to give back to the communities in which they live and work. Our mission is to build the next generation. We seek to strengthen the connection between school and work through industry leadership and increased awareness of diverse career opportunities, while creating environments in and out of school that support young people to learn by doing.
To support the advancement of the communities in which we live and work via engagement in charitable initiatives, and commitment to industry focused education and research.
THREE FOCUS AREAS
The Foundation is dedicated to the advancement of communities across British Columbia by working through three focus areas:
EDUCATION AND TRAINING
By promoting the advancement of industry training and career development, we are helping to develop the industry’s workforce of tomorrow.
We provide funding opportunities for research projects focused on enhancing safety, improving industry practices, and contributing to the sustainability of the construction industry.
We engage in charitable initiatives that support projects in the communities in which we live and work.
GRANTS AND FUNDING
The Construction Foundation provides grants to support a number of projects across the entire province. To date, we have distributed over $3 Million in support of skilled trade and technological education in BC’s K – 12 system.
