Solar Work in Ottawa

The Carpenters’ of Ontario are known for looking beyond traditional construction in order to create career growth and opportunities within the ever-changing industry. In the July 25, 2013 issue of Daily Commercial News, carpenters from Local 1946 got to show off their new 31,000 square foot training facility located in London, Ontario, with carpenters in training to handle solar panels. Local 27 carpenters were the next to demonstrate the facility they built to provide instruction in solar farm assembly. It is located in Vaughan, Ontario.
