Building Foundations for Empowered Futures
At CFBC, our vision is to improve the social - economic health of the communities in which we live and work.
Retention, Progression, Completion
The road to gaining a Red Seal endorsement or trade qualification is not always a straight line and sometimes, apprentices need a hand to plan for their next step to gain their professional designation. Our team can help.
Investing in Research
We support research projects focused on innovation in the built environment including, but not limited to, the enhancement of safety, improvement of industry practices, and increased focus on sustainability of the construction industry.

Building the Next Generation

As a registered Canadian charity, the Construction Foundation of British Columbia (CFBC) focuses on the development and continued excellence of the skilled trades and occupations within BC’s workforce.

We work with youth, newcomers, First Nations communities, and the skilled trades to reduce barriers to employment.  We do this by providing bursaries, education supports, and tutoring to enable career advancements.
