The Humber Advantage

Humber's Centre for Trades and Technology located on Carrier Drive is the new home for Plumber Apprenticeship program. We have a shop that is equipped with materials and equipment that allow teachers to reinforce the theory portion of our courses and highlight current trends within the plumbing industry.

Your Career

The City of Toronto – Canada’s largest city – uses 1.24 million cubic metres of water on an average day. This is enough to fill the Rogers Centre stadium every day for a year. At the same time, Toronto produces a similar volume of sewage or waste water every day. This shows how cities and towns all over the country provide career opportunities in many sectors within the plumbing industry. You can work in new construction work in different sectors such as low-rise residential (housing), high-rise residential (condominiums), or commercial and industrial construction. You can install piping systems for the distribution and use of potable water and the safe removal of sanitary sewage. You could choose to do renovation and remodelling of existing plumbing systems or to repair and maintain these existing systems. Finally, you could choose to work in a related aspect of the plumbing industry such as system design, inspections or the plumbing material wholesale sector.
