Work in Canada

Posted: 1/4/2013

If you are interested in UBC work in Canada, you cannot just fly there or call a Canadian affiliate. You need formal documents, proven skills and Regional Council sign-off.

Applying for work in Canada is a process. There are requirements, and it takes time.

Access the complete instructions for applying for work in Canada through the UBC website at www.carpenters.org. Click on the Work in Canada button and sign into the Members Only section of the website.

Your first steps are to get a U.S. passport, FBI record check and fingerprint check; this can take 4-6 weeks. So, go to the Work in Canada section and use the links there for information on how to get started on your documents.

For Chicago Regional Council of Carpenters members to register for work in Canada, click here to go directly to the registration website.

PLEASE NOTE: If you previously filled out an application and are waiting to be called, please review your application  to make sure all information is updated (i.e. phone numbers, email addresses, certifications).
