Careers in the trades often lead to managerial and/or ownership positions, yet few trades people have the opportunity to academically prepare themselves with the skills required to own and operate their own business.
The objective of the Trades Management program of University of the Fraser Valley is to produce graduate students who are equipped to successfully function as managers and owners of a trade-related business in today's rapidly changing global environment.
Career Outlook for Trades Management
Currently in Canada, economists predict that a shortage of skilled trades workers may affect the country’s ability to compete in the global market. In fact, these shortages have recently triggered immigration reform to allow an influx of foreign workers to fill in vacancies.
Just as acute are shortages of supervisors to organize and manage teams and projects. Human Resources and Skills Development Canada reports a shortage of managers in construction, transportation, agriculture, logging and forestry, as well as mining, oil and gas. As a large cohort of older, skilled workers are entering retirement in the next decade, management and leadership positions are expected to open for trades workers with the right skills and credentials.
