January 24, 2023
Skyway Canada has announced it has formed a partnership with the Tobique First Nation of western New Brunswick to train its members in scaffolding, swing stage erection and shoring.
Skyway, which also offers engineering, erection, rope access, fireproofing and dismantling services, will work with Carpenters’ Union Local 1386 and the Tobique partnership entity called Moskwən-Way to develop the next generation of scaffolders for its ICI portfolio.
It’s Skyway’s first such partnership in New Brunswick after launching several in Western Canada.
“We are excited to develop Moskwən-Way and to be collaborating with our partners from the Tobique First Nation Development team,” said Randy Brown, regional manager of Skyway’s Atlantic region.
“We’ve been known to grow the Aboriginal business and create as many jobs as we can for the Aboriginal communities in doing so, and we’re very involved in safety and in training for the people and to be well equipped to do the job successfully.”
