Posted in Development, Drupal

The British Columbia and Yukon Territory Building and Construction Trades Council is an umbrella organization for construction unions in the province of British Columbia. Currently there are 14 unions in the province who are affiliated to the BCYT-BCTC. Together, these unions represent 40,000 members and highly skilled craft workers throughout BC and the Yukon Territory.

As part of a redesign and rebuild effort for their website, BC Building Trades wanted to make sure workers have an opportunity to look around the building trades for a bit… find out as much as they can… and then make a decision that works for the individual.

To that end we built a portal to help workers explore. They simply use the tools provided to select a trade to explore and where they live which gives them info that includes:

  • About the Trade: with information provided by the BC Industry Training Authority, the national Red Seal program, and BC WorkFutures (with details on working conditions, main duties and career paths).
  • About the Training: where workers can find approved training, along with info on grants and other financial assistance.
  • About the Union: find out what union a worker belong to and what it can do for them.
