    How is the RoadShow promoting career opportunities in the highway maintenance and road building industry?

    The RoadShow is a talent attraction program featuring innovative technologies that give participants a first-hand experience of what it’s like to work in the industry. This cross-province tour includes a series of trips and journeys to all corners of BC, with a custom 34’ trailer that includes a number of heavy equipment simulators and virtual reality experience.

    Who can participate in the RoadShow?

    The RoadShow is intended for jobseekers interested in the road-building industry, though it will be open for all to attend and experience. We’re particularly hoping to provide opportunities to underrepresented groups, including women, Indigenous Peoples, new immigrants, veterans, and individuals under 40.

    What jobs are being promoted?

    There are a number of key jobs being promoted within the industry, including plow truck drivers, heavy equipment operators and heavy duty mechanics.

    Why are these job opportunities being promoted by the BC Road Builders?

    The BC Road Builders & Heavy Construction Association advocates for investment in the core infrastructure that is the backbone of this province. This includes the roads, bridges and tunnels that create economic growth, strong communities and a sustainable environment. The association represents more than 300 companies in the road building and maintenance industry.

    Who is providing the funding for this program?

    The RoadShow talent attraction program is the recipient of grant funding from the Canada-British Columbia Labour Market Development Agreement, with funds administered by the Ministry of Social Development and Poverty Reduction.
