Upgrade Your Skills
Our programs are broken into two distinctive categories: Hard Skills, and Soft Skills. The purpose of this training is to improve the employability of workers in Ontario, and to open up the vast opportunities to those workers who take a proactive approach to career management.

Every June a letter is sent out to the members of Local 837 informing them that this year awards will be given to 8 students who not only achieve academic excellence but who also excel in extra-curricular activities. These recipients must be registered to attend a post secondary education. Those attending College receive a scholarship in the amount of $2,000.00 and those attending University receive $3,000.00 if chosen. The awards are presented at a Gala Dinner given by Local 837 in honor of these chosen 8 individuals.
