On February 27th, RESCON hosted its Annual General Meeting. We were privileged to have the Honourable Monte McNaughton, Minister of Labour, Training and Skills Development attend the AGM.

This was the first time that Minister McNaughton joined our group and we were pleased to host him. Minister McNaughton addressed our members and discussed at length his priorities, including eliminating the stigma around a career in the skilled trades, removing entry barriers and increasing the number of young people and apprentices employers hire.

Our members appreciated the opportunity to hear directly from the Minister.

RESCON is looking forward to continuing working with Minister McNaughton, his ministry and government on addressing health and safety construction practices as well as recruitment and retention within the construction to ensure an adequate supply of labour, which is integral to building housing and infrastructure in the GTHA and all of Ontario.

Nadia Todorova is RESCON's senior director of government relations. Email her at todorova@rescon.com.
