Toronto Community Benefits Network is beginning an exciting new initiative, Increasing Diversity in Red Seal Trades. This project will prioritize support for women, newcomers and indigenous people to access the trades jobs that will open up through four Community Benefits Agreements over the next four and a half years. It will target, overall, 70% women participating in the activities of the project.
We are inviting proposals from community organizations and groups within our network to act as Community Hosts who will engage and inform women, indigenous people and newcomers about these construction jobs and apprenticeship opportunities, and refer those interested to next steps.
Selected Community Hosts will receive an information kit as well as training to support the target groups to learn about and pursue jobs in construction trades.

Interested organizations are invited to email a short proposal to Rosemarie Powell, firstname.lastname@example.org, by April 5, 2019.
Successful proponents will be contacted by April 26, 2019
