NAIT partnership looks to help low-income Edmontonians build careers in the trades

August 30, 2018

A partnership between the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology, Stuart Olson, and Capital Region Housing will help low-income Edmontonians to build careers in the trades. The partnership will see interested tenants of Capital Region Housing train as apprentices at NAIT while they work for Stuart Olson to build a new affordable housing project. The construction project is expected to take three years. “It’s really exciting to see a helping organization, a responsible corporate citizen and a post-secondary institution all coming together to provide something that can be life-changing for people,” said city councillor Aaron Paquette. “This is the kind of thing that we would like to see more of in the city.” NAITThe Star Edmonton
