Steelcraft is proud to announce that it is one of four companies in Ontario to receive the 2012 Minister’s Award for Apprenticeship Training, awarded by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and University.
Since 1995, we have helped nearly 50 people receive certification through apprenticeships and other training programs. Over that time, we have also provided additional learning opportunities for young people in the public and separate school boards through the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP) and co-op education programs.
Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities Glenn Murray congratulated Steelcraft in a letter recognizing its dedication to training and employing apprentices in Ontario. “I encourage Steelcraft to continue the good work that you do in providing skills training and employment opportunities. Businesses such as yours are the backbone of the Ontario economy.”
Steelcraft COO Keith Zehr noted that by providing apprenticeship opportunities, Steelcraft’s efforts have far-reaching impact. “It impacts the community, people’s lives and supports our organization. I receive a great deal of personal satisfaction in seeing young people get a career, develop their future and grow. We are particularly thankful of the trades that are helping us with schooling and the Ministry for their assistance. Their support in getting skilled people into our organization makes it easier to run and grow our business
