Canada’s Building Trades Unions and our 600,000 members honour and thank the brave men and women and their families who have and continue to serve Canada. On November 8, Indigenous Veterans Day, and November 11, Remembrance Day, we join communities across the country as we pay our respects to Canada’s veterans and those currently serving.It is important that we not only honour these women and men today, but each and every day, by offering support and a pathway to a second career when they return home. Helmets to Hardhats Canada is a program of Canada’s Building Trades Unions that was founded in 2012 to provide serving, transitioning, and former military members opportunities in the unionized construction industry. Regardless of whether you are heading to an in-person ceremony; watching on tv or online; or taking the day to reflect in other ways, join us as we say thank you to veterans this Remembrance Day. Lest we forget. Sean Strickland, Executive Director, Canada’s Building Trades UnionsView

With municipal elections happening around the province right now, it’s important that we take notice and do what we can for a favourable outcome. Even at this level, it’s important that union friendly candidates are elected.
Many times, the candidates for provincial and federal positions come from the municipal level, so having more union friendly people in those positions can effect all levels.
The labour councils around the province have taken a look at the candidates and determined which candidates are likely to be union friendly.
Handy poll cards have been created to help you with your decisions on election day. Download, print, or pull them up on your mobile phone on election day and help create a better environment for unions to get even better.View
Thanksgiving Day in Canada has been a holiday on the second Monday of October since 1957; and is a chance for people to give thanks for a good harvest and other fortunes in the past year.
As union members, we give thanks to the builders of our Labour Movement; it’s because of them that today we reap the benefits of their hard work through our collective bargaining agreements and the legislation they fought so hard to put in place.
Please have an enjoyable and safe Thanksgiving long weekend, as this weekend comes with fun family time and good food. It is important to take the time to be with your family and friends and to put aside the stresses of your everyday work life.
This holiday Monday, October 10th, give thanks for the blessings in one’s life and a Happy Thanksgiving to you all
