shortage of skilled trades

The Construction Association of Prince Edward Island (CAPEI) is collaborating with the Canadian government and regional partners to tackle the critical shortage of skilled trades in Atlantic Canada’s construction sector. With a $210,000 non-repayable contribution from ACOA’s Regional Economic Growth through Innovation (REGI) program, CAPEI aims to implement a recruitment and retention strategy. 

This initiative, supported by an additional $160,000 from the Province of Prince Edward Island through Skills PEI, will connect construction companies to immigration expertise services, engage qualified workers internationally, and provide integration training. The goal is to expedite hiring for in-demand positions, addressing immediate workforce shortages and promoting regional economic growth. This effort aligns with the Government of Canada’s commitment to boosting the housing supply and creating well-paying jobs 

The Honourable Jenn Redmond, P.E.I. Minister of Workforce, Advanced Learning and Population stated:

“With more people choosing to call Prince Edward Island home, the government’s decades-long partnership with the Construction Association of PEI is critical to meeting the province’s pressing infrastructure needs. The industry-led recruitment and retention strategy will be a significant step toward developing a larger and more sustainable skilled workforce for the island.”
