Province Commits $798,000 For Construction Pilot Project App

A Friday event in Salmon Arm saw the Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training announce $798,000 in funding for a new project that looks to connect B.C students with employers in the construction field.

The 'Construction Ready Pilot Project' is based around an app that will provide features for students, and those in the construction industry on the hiring side.

Shuswap MLA Greg Kyllo helped make today's announcement from the Jackson Campus of Salmon Arm Secondary.

The project as a whole is worth $923,000, with contributions also coming from industry partners, and the Construction Foundation of B.C.
