Canada currently faces a critical shortage of skilled workers. Skilled tradespeople will be increasingly in demand because of the rapid pace of technological changes and as current workers in the field begin to retire. According to the Working in Canada Report (Government of Canada), employment opportunities for licensed welders will be steady.

Graduates of this program will find a range of employment opportunities through welder apprenticeship programs, as well as positions associated with manufacturing and fabricating, automotive, heavy equipment production, automation, and construction. Self-employment or working in the construction oil industry are also viable options upon graduation.
