About Us

Skilled Trades Prep is a Canadian Registered Company and the only one that provides a unique accelerated service designed to support internationally skilled tradespeople in collaboration with Skilled Trades Ontario. This far, we helped thousands of skilled tradespeople to obtain their license from Canada. Our company is the only one that offers this service to people with lower level of English but posses the trades experience gained outside of Canada and hours of experience.

The Focus

Our service aim on assisting immigrants living in Canada and internationally trained tradespeople to successfully complete their Trades Equivalency Assessment (TEA) application to obtain trades license in Canada.

The Problem

Canada is currently facing a significant shortage of skilled trades workers across various industries. According to Statistics Canada, there are approximately 500,000 job vacancies in the skilled trades sector, with this number expected to rise in the coming years. This shortage is primarily attributed to several factors:

  • Aging Workforce
  • Increasing Demand
  • Changing Perceptions
