How Can You Get Involved?


Jobs in the trades are Epic


 Introduction To Epic Jobs

2019’s Epic Jobs event opened the eyes of 1,800 students to the trades.

Grade 7 & 8 students from across the Grand Erie region got a chance to try their hand at building a wall, changing tires on a car, use a virtual welder, operate a mini excavator and many more job-related activities.

For most students, the day-long event was their first exposure to careers in the trades.

Watch our videos and explore our photo galleries below.

Epic Jobs is an annual community event designed to open the eyes of students to potential careers in the skilled trades.

The Workforce Planning Board organized Epic Jobs 2017-2019, in partnership with the Grand Erie District School Board, the Brant Haldimand Norfolk Catholic District School Board, and the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program.
