We are looking for someone who would like to consider becoming a professional welder through an apprenticeship program.


Requirements: No work experience required, but an ability to safely use and work around power tools, machinery and heavy equipment is required.

Applicants must be willing and able to be trained on the job to work safely around the many hazards present in a metal fabrication shop.


This is a physically demanding job and requires the ability to:

  • Lift up to 25 kg

    • saws, grinders and drills

  • Shop and yard cleanup
  • Material handling (metal sheets, bars, tubes etc.)
