Calls to address shortage of skilled workers

A Niagara politician will stand up in the House of Commons today to call for a Federal Trades Strategy.

Niagara Centre MP Vance Badawey says businesses in Niagara and across the country are in desperate need of skilled tradespeople.

Via a release, the President of the Niagara and Haldimand Building Trades Council notes the current government has done a 'great job' investing in skilled trades, but more work needs to be done to attract more women, Indigenous people, youth, and new Canadians to the trades.
