Funded through the Government of Canada’s Union Training and Innovation Program (UTIP), Canada’s Building Trades Unions (CBTU) is leading the Building It Green project in partnership with SkillPlan, the Climate and Industry Research Team (CIRT), and SRDC.
Working in five regions across Canada, this project is assembling a broad network of stakeholders, including climate experts and labour, education and training institutions, to research, review, enhance, and evaluate the construction industry’s knowledge and skills with regards to climate literacy.
The overall project objective is to develop and test the integration of climate literacy into training for apprentices and journeyworks to prepare the industry’s unionized workforce to better meet Canada’s climate change commitment.
