Your Career

Canada currently faces a critical shortage of skilled workers. Skilled tradespeople will be increasingly in demand because of the rapid pace of technological changes and as current workers in the field begin to retire. According to the Working in Canada Report (Government of Canada), employment opportunities for licensed millwrights will be steady.

Graduates of this program will find a range of employment opportunities through millwright apprenticeship programs, as well as positions associated with construction, manufacturing and industry work, metal fabrication, green energy, and industrial maintenance. There are many opportunities for advancement within this career path from supervisory to management positions.
