From schools, hospitals, recreation facilities, and now a new Hospice, the Cape Breton Island Building and Construction Trades Council and their unionized contractors are involved in almost every major construction project on Cape Breton Island. Along with working together on job sites, they work together on trades and safety training.

“Substantial donations like this $25,000 to the Hospice Palliative Care Society are made possible because of our members and unionized contractors. When our tradespeople and unionized contractors are working here, they are giving back on Cape Breton Island and helping to create a more sustainable island. They see the need and the great work of the Hospice Palliative Care Society. I am proud to be representing our members and unionized contractors today.”, Jack Wall, President- Cape Breton Island Building and Construction Trades Council.”
