The TradeUp for Success program is a national effort to promote to trades in the electricity sector to youth across Canada.
TradeUp for Success began as a joint effort of the Power Workers’ Union (PWU), Hydro One, Ontario Power Generation and Bruce Power. It aimed to reach out to Ontario youth, encouraging them to consider careers in the electricity industry.
With oversight from PWU, Electricity Human Resources Canada (EHRC) has taken TradeUp for Success national. To date, EHRC has created a program, based on the original Ontario model, for British Columbia. We plan to develop similar programs in other provinces.
Taken to the national level, TradeUp for Success invites Canadian youth to learn about the benefits of careers in the electricity sector including stability, good salary and opportunities for advancement.
