Nova Scotia Construction Sector Council Bridging Community and Industry (BCI)

The Mobile Training Centres (MTCs) are part of the Nova Scotia Construction Sector Council’s ‘Bridging Community and Industry’ training program. This program is co-funded by the Government of Canada and the Province of Nova Scotia. The purpose is to deliver industry-based training, identified by labour market needs, for new entrants to the sector/trade with a focus on addressing barriers for underrepresented groups (traditionally marginalized).
