As the population of Grey and Bruce County and surrounding areas grows substantially over the next 20 years, so too will demand for experienced workers in various skilled trades.

Postsecondary skilled trades training can be an important stepping stone to a well-paying, rewarding career. Georgian’s Owen Sound Campus (1450 8th St. E.) is inviting local residents to learn how they can be part of the industry at its fourth annual Trades Open House on Saturday, June 20.

Everyone is welcome to drop by the campus between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. to ask questions, talk with program faculty, take a tour and learn about job opportunities in the skilled trades.
