About the Foundation

The Construction Foundation is British Columbia’s trades and technology education charitable organization. Our network reaches across the province to engage thousands of young people as they explore and plan for their future. Our delivery model enables us to bring industry to the classroom to introduce young people to the various trades and technology careers that are available after graduation.

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.
