The Wood Manufacturing Council (WMC) is pleased to announce its participation in the 2021 Skills Ontario Career Exploration Showcase. Due to COVID-19 restrictions across the province, Skills Ontario has made the decision to hold its Career Exploration Showcase in a virtual format on May 12th from 9am to 8pm. During this event, visitors will learn all about the career options available in the skilled trades and technologies.
As we’ve done in past years, we’re proud to be partnering with our forestry colleagues – Forests Ontario and Project Learning Tree Canada to represent Ontario’s forestry and wood manufacturing sectors. As a team, we’ll share potential career pathways for skilled trades and technologies in our sectors, giving visitors the knowledge and resources to better understand forestry and wood manufacturing.
When you visit us, you’ll have a chance to view and download content like presentations and videos. Besides live chatting with our representatives, you may have a chance to participate in quizzes and activities that will help you learn more about forestry and wood manufacturing. The virtual event will run on the cloud, so you don’t need to install software to access this online event, all you need is a standard web browser and a stable internet connection.
We look forward to having meaningful conversations with you via the audio, visual and chat technologies of our virtual booth! Visit the event page and look for our logo to find us:
