To date, the Hammer Heads program has saved the government $4.6 million and counting!
The Central Ontario Building Trades (COBT) and our affiliates established Hammer Heads to assist under-resourced and Aboriginal youth by linking them to registered apprenticeship opportunities in the skilled construction trades which might not otherwise be accessible. As a community-based initiative, Hammer Heads takes pride in giving back to our communities by delivering meaningful careers, not temporary jobs, focusing on 100% success and retention strategies. The Hammer Heads program all begins with the first step.
