Who is MCSC?
The Manitoba Construction Sector Council (MCSC), the industry’s human resource council, acts as a federation of its current five industry and Indigenous advocacy associations. In developing the future potential of the organization, a new robust network of partnerships in communities will enhance its capacity to meet its vision of the future.
As construction sector leaders, the MCSC has the overall responsibility in evolving the scope to reflect the diverse interests of the industry, and strengthening the human resources within its network. This is accomplished by aligning itself and its products, services, and partnerships with the vision of the industry.
Funding assistance provided by the Manitoba government.
We have had the benefit of partnering with MCSC since its inception as a founding member on a wide variety of projects which cover a broad spectrum of industry need and interest. Those include but are not limited to: serving as a lead liaison with, to and for the Indigenous communities and offering education, training and employment opportunities; developing curriculum in a variety of heavy civil related education streams; offering education and training to students interested in heavy construction careers in Thompson, and the development of heavy equipment operating training and certification to name but a few.
As the above list, albeit incomplete, demonstrates, that the MCSC mandate which includes identifying gaps in education and training; filling those gaps by developing curriculum, content and standards; partnering in or facilitating delivery, demonstrates why MCSC is regarded as the 'go to' entity for educational and training partnerships for our industry.
I believe that our partnership with MCSC has had a positive impact on both our industry and our emerging workforce. We look forward to continuing and furthering that relationship.
MCSC has played an important role in promoting careers in the construction trades. That exposure and countless sessions with students across Manitoba, has made it possible for many young Manitobans to choose a construction career. The economic contribution of these professional programs would be difficult to quantify but undoubtedly significant. For MBT, MCSC has allowed us to work with other industry stakeholders to address our common interests.
On behalf of our afflicted union partners and over 8,000 skilled trades and construction professionals, we congratulate MCSC on a successful decade and extend our thanks to staff and Board members who have contributed their time and commitment to our industry. MBT looks forward to working with MCSC for many years to come.
Congratulations to everyone at the Manitoba Construction Sector Council on your 10th anniversary and we wish you continued success for many, many years to come!
The council has clearly understood the message that employment opportunities don't always look the same and not everyone falls in the same categories which has created a buzz that the normal every day jobs has changed. Now careers are being made and candidates have found a new way to learn and work while creating a tremendous amount of self-worth and pride in themselves and the communities they're from.
It's an exciting time to be part of this much needed program that's evolving to meet the needs of workers and companies alike working and thriving throughout the province.
With the continuous and evolving projects and career opportunities, the amount of hard work the board has put in is evident.
