Helmets to Hardhats Canada began in 2012, during Canada’s involvement in Afghanistan and the need for quality careers for military who wanted to transition to civilian life. Our National Director, Joe Maloney, founder of the Helmets to Hardhats program, recognized the advantages for both military personnel and labour unions. "It's win-win for both", says Joe Maloney, "the Building Trade Unions offer the best pay, benefits, the safest job sites and the fairest contractors. Veterans shouldn't have anything less than the best after their service and employers need high calibre employees." After seven years of service to military and their families, the feedback from our clients is our best measure of success.
