CBE receives Partnership Award from the Calgary Construction
The Calgary Board of Education has received the Building Futures Industry
Partnership Award from the Calgary Construction Association (CCA). The
award, presented to the CBE at a public board meeting on May 12, recognizes
the many ways we have worked with the CCA over the past nine years to
support students interested in construction careers.
The CCA provides opportunities for CBE students to be exposed to a
variety of careers in construction. One of these is through the annual
Calgary Construction Expo at the BMO Centre (2015 – 9th Annual!).
This hands-on event allows students to try several construction trades
under the supervision of volunteer certified journeypersons. The expo has
grown over the years with more than 2,000 middle and high school students
