About Us

Construct is a business where everyone is welcomed, included and supported. As an employment social enterprise, Construct provides in-class training, on-the-job work experience, and wraparound supports to help vulnerable individuals secure long-term, well-paying careers in the construction trades.

By sourcing and bidding on jobs within our community Construct turns job sites into on-the-job learning experiences helping to propel trainees into careers in the trades. 

More than a business with a heart, Construct is a real solution to ending homelessness. By connecting people to career paths, breaking down barriers to meaningful employment, and leading them to affordable housing, Construct will lift people out of poverty and into opportunity.

Construct’s Mission

To offer quality labour services by empowering those facing barriers to transition to autonomous and full-time employment in the trades.  
While you receive high-quality work from Construct’s team of professionals and their trainees, you are engaging in social change and creating a ripple effect. By hiring Construct, you are lifting our community’s most vulnerable out of poverty.

Theory of Change:

… housing stability is achievable through sustainable careers, by providing training and general labour experience to individuals who face barriers to employment, empowering participants with intensive supports, finally transitioning them to independent, and profitable employment.

Construct is modeled after successful trades-based employment social enterprises across Canada. Construct provides individuals with support, training, experience, and connections necessary to help start their trades careers.

Individuals will have the opportunity to learn in class and on-site using construction contracts to apply their learning. Upon graduating from the program, individuals will be connected directly to employment opportunities

Anyone who is willing to learn and put in the leg work should consider joining this program. Construct has a strong support team, and they are willing to help you in any way possible. I wouldn’t have wanted to miss this opportunity for the world. If I could do the program again, I would, hands down!
