Is carpentry the career for me?

Carpenters build and repair a vast array of structures made of wood, wood-substitutes and other materials.  Many work for construction companies, contractors and maintenance departments; others are self employed.  “Carpenter” is a nationally designated trade under the Inter-provincial Red Seal program.  Carpenters assemble and erect forms for concrete, wood and metal frame construction and use plans and instruments to prepare for excavating and    shoring. On smaller projects, they direct   concrete placement, and install exterior and interior finish materials such as siding, doors, windows and cabinets.
