OTTAWA, Sept. 17, 2019 /CNW/ – Challenging Canada’s next leaders to build a better future, Let’s Build Canada is back for the 2019 election.
Let’s Build Canada is a coalition of building and construction trade unions advocating for building a more resilient, sustainable and fair Canada. LBC advocates for infrastructure built to withstand climate change, an economy which levels the playing field for all Canadians and a system built to train the workers of tomorrow.
This year, LBC returns with the support of seven unions, representing 300,000 Canadian workers in the building and construction sector. Together, these unions represent Canadians from communities, large and small, in every province and territory.

Alberta welder Alanna Marklund, the first Canadian apprentice to win the United Association’s prestigious Allyn Parmenter and George Bliss Award, enjoys the day-to-day challenges inherent in the trade.
“I like the challenge of the weld,” says Marklund, who is employed through the union at Aecon Industrial-Western Canada’s fabrication shop at Sherwood Park just outside the city of Edmonton.
“I like to get a stack of prints and work through them. I like being given a weld that has something complicated about it. I like to really challenge myself and see how well I can do.”
