Established in 2012, the Construction Foundation is a registered Canadian charity. We build community through engagement in charitable initiatives and a commitment to industry focused education and research that benefits all British Columbians.
Our first fundraising campaign, Project Shop Class, was designed to assist BC’s secondary schools with new shop class equipment. Over the past six years the Foundation has raised and distributed over $3 Million dollars to schools in support of shop class programs.
Our pillar program, Skills Ready, has grown to cover three main areas of the province and is making great strides in increasing student awareness of skilled trade and technology careers.
TOGETHER, WE ARE BUILDING THE NEXT GENERATION.
To encourage and support good works on behalf of the construction industry that will benefit all British Columbians.
To support the advancement of the communities in which we live and work via engagement in charitable initiatives, and commitment to industry focused education and research.
The Foundation is dedicated to the advancement of communities across British Columbia by working through three focus areas:
Education and Training
By promoting the advancement of industry training and career development, we are helping to develop the industry’s workforce of tomorrow.
We provide funding opportunities for research projects focused on innovation in the built environment including, but not limited to, the enhancement of safety, improvement of industry practices, and increased focus on sustainability of the construction industry.
We engage in charitable initiatives that support projects in the communities in which we live and work.
