Feature of the month | February 2009

TradesInfo.ca (InfoMetiers.ca) is a new website from UFCW Local 247’s Twenty Four Seven Training Centre which has branches in New Westminster, Fort Saint John, Prince George and Kelowna, B. C.

Available in both official languages, the site provides comprehensive information for workers who are interested in the trades. A clean and intuitive interface provides accessibility to a variety of users regardless of literacy level.

The training centre began the development of a trades-focused website in 2004 in order to profile transferable skills of forestry workers as part of a program designed to assist them in moving to suitable employment in other industries. The website was so successful its application was expanded over the years and it has now evolved into TradesInfo.ca.

Features of the website include:

  • Free online account registration
  • A trades-focused resumé builder
  • A skill builder that measures your trade skills against Canadian standards
  • A personalized web profile to showcase your skills, and
  • Links to provincial apprenticeship authorities
