Helmets to Hardhats (H2H) Canada is a registered non-profit organization that has been providing second career opportunities within Canada's Building Trade Unions to the military-affiliated community for over a decade. We ensure the military community is connected to careers with the best industry wages, benefits and pension plans. At the same time, Canada's Unions and employers receive highly motivated, trained and dedicated employees to add to their workforce. H2H is recognized as a leading service provider by the Government of Ontario, the Canadian Armed Forces and Veterans Affairs Canada.
The mission of Helmets to Hardhats (H2H) is to support Veterans, reservists, senior cadets, military family members and Afghan Nationals with an enduring relationship to Canada in finding a meaningful second career in the unionized construction industry. H2H builds civilian careers for the military community by simplifying and expediting the process for Veterans to continue serving their communities, this time, through the skilled trades and apprenticeship opportunities.Find out more
