The construction industry is expected to lose hundreds of thousands of skilled tradespeople to retirement over the next decade, creating a major need for rapid skills development.
The act of mentorship has long been recognized as an effective means of knowledge transfer that would benefit the industry. Mentors not only pass on their knowledge and experience but are also responsible for planning and guiding the learning process for apprentices.
Canada’s Building Trades Mentorship Alliance (CBTMA) aims to deliver effective, innovative and inclusive mentorship strategies and education training options to Canada’s Building Trades Unions’ affiliated members, their signatory contractors and other potential clients.
Canada’s Building Trades Mentorship Alliance is a collaborative initiative of Canada’s Building Trades Unions (CBTU) and their Mentorship Alliance partners:
NB-MAP provides customized workforce services, education and tools to employers and union locals across Canada, enabling
the development of an in-house Learning Culture. We assist our clients in managing this organizational transformation, using education to enable this cultural change.
NB-MAP’s solution is customized to each trades employer we work with; our curriculum adapts to the needs of our learners, and we engage all employees at all levels. NB-MAP gives journeypersons the tools to be great teachers, role models and coaches to apprentices in the workplace!
