Carpenters hope to transform fallen historic trees

Our Employment Counselor in Saint John, NB is sharing this news story from last night that features a company called Catapult Construction that CCRW Saint John site works closely with. We’ve helped multiple clients find jobs there and provided them with skills upgrading and other accommodations to get them started in their new careers in the construction industry as carpenters, furniture builders and skilled labourers.

As some of you may have heard, Hurricane Dorian slammed the Maritimes pretty hard last weekend, it was the 2nd most damaging hurricane to make landfall in our history. The city of Saint John was hit hard; most heartbreaking was the loss of several centuries old, Victorian era trees that lined a park in the heart of our city called King’s Square.. Some trees there are close to 200 years old, older than Canada itself! (Saint John is Canada’s first incorporated city and is 234 years old!)

Catapult Construction hopes to turn some of those downed trees into furniture for all citizens to enjoy. We are so proud to work with this great organization that helps so many people with disabilities and barriers to employment find meaningful careers where they can offer such wonderful services to our community!
