Who We Work With

Industry Partners

MCSC partners with construction companies to identify and address skill gaps and labour shortages. When skill gaps are identified, MCSC will work with educational institutions across Canada to research current training that avoids duplication of services. If skill gaps are not being addressed in Manitoba, MCSC will develop and deliver a micro-credential that provides a clear career path to lifelong learning apprenticeship.

Educational Institutions

MCSC has partnered with educational institutions to establish a mutually beneficial relationship with the construction industry and students seeking careers in the sector. The partners work together to recognize prior learning, develop new courses, and create a road map for youth and adults returning to school. Learners navigate the system and open all doors for learning.


Grateful for their support, MCSC receives their core funding from the Province of Manitoba. Additional special project funding is obtained from the Government of Canada, the construction industry, Indigenous communities and partners.

Community Members

MCSC has collaborated on industry-driven training projects in dozens of Indigenous communities across the province. MCSC’s Indigenous Liaison is from northern Manitoba and has four decades of construction management experience. His work in the sector and the relationships he has built with chiefs and councils is instrumental to the success of MCSC community programs.

Programming Just For You

MCSC supports underrepresented groups across Manitoba including women, youth, newcomers and Indigenous people who are seeking a career pathway in the construction sector.

We deliver our training in three ways


MCSC focuses on in person training as many of our learners have been out of school and work for some time or have challenges with English language. 


Online learning is available for newcomers seeking information on the Canadian workplace culture of construction and supervisor training  


MCSC’s blended learning delivery is for learners who want flexibility and reinforcement of new knowledge. Students have an onsite instructor and access to the online curriculum, resources and textbooks.
