Are you interested in hosting an experienced immigrant trades-person for 12 weeks at no cost?

The Trades Practical Assessment Program connects employers across Nova Scotia with experienced tradespeople. As a host employer, you offer the chance to work in your organization for up to 12-weeks at no cost to you. There is no obligation to hire; you have the opportunity to assess their skills on the job and provide recommendations on apprenticeship and exam level readiness.

Participants are keen to participate – they gain valuable Canadian work experience, local references, experience towards their level or Red Seal and the opportunity to network and showcase their skills. All participants have a minimum of 2 years’ experience in their trades, are certified  in WHMIS, Fire Safety and First Aid, and are job ready and legally eligible to work in Canada.

What are the benefits to you?

Flexible: Participants are flexible and can start with entry level tasks

Low Risk: Tradespersons are insured against injury at the workplace through ISANS

Targeted: Individual skills are matched with employer needs

Career Focused: Tradespersons are connected to the Nova Scotia Apprenticeship Agency and eager to become certified in their trades
