OCA 2020 Construction Symposium & Trade Show

Youth Engagement - Future, Yours to Build

The Ottawa Construction Association is pleased to announce that its Construction Symposium & Trade Show on February 26 and 27 will feature a youth engagement component.

Our goal is to encourage high-school students to learn more about the wide array of career opportunities available to them in the construction industry. We are working closely with representatives from the region’s district school boards and industry volunteers to make the component as engaging as possible, and have a variety of hands-on activities and tasks planned in conjunction with our partners.

Students will have the opportunity to experience 18 trade and technology stations that will provide experiential learning opportunities. Many of these stations will focus on applications of technology in our industry, including mobile technologies, drones, robotics, artificial intelligence, virtual reality and building information modeling.
