Who: The Skilled Trades College of Canada. Ralph Cerasuolo, director, and Mike Di Donato, operations manager, and the students will be available for interviews.
What: A media day for the College's new masonry program showcasing the students' masonry skills as they build a brick wall in their lab space.
Where: 231 Rowntree Dairy Rd. (near Hwy. 7 and Weston Rd.), Vaughan, Ontario.
Why: This free program kicked off its first eight-week term in January, and the College wants more people to know about lucrative, new career opportunities. There is a large and growing demand for bricklayers to help build homes across the GTA and Ontario.
