The NHL announced today that it has signed an apprenticeship agreement with a company in Calgary, which is offering construction apprentices in the city.
The partnership will begin with a two-week training program for those 18 years and older, which will include a three-day workshop.
The apprenticeship will also include three-week mentoring and practical experience.
The apprenticeship program is open to anyone from any age, including those with disabilities.
Anyone who wants to learn how to build or repair a home or office building, or to perform some other construction job, should apply and submit an application online.
The program will last until September 2017.
The NHL is also encouraging Canadians to apply for its Canadian Sportscare program, which offers support for construction workers and their families.
This program provides up to $2,000 in support to individuals who have a serious injury or illness.
The NHL says it will also provide $1,000 for the family of a construction worker who is killed in the line of duty.
