The SICA Fund

The Future of Construction starts now

Helping the next generation find their fit in the construction industry.

Who is the Construction Foundation?

The Construction Foundation is British Columbia’s trades and technology education charitable organization. Their network reaches across the province to engage thousands of young people as they explore and plan for their future. Their delivery model enables us to bring industry to the classroom to introduce young people to the various trades and technology careers that are available after graduation.

Established in 2012, the Construction Foundation is a registered Canadian charity. We build community through engagement in charitable initiatives and a commitment to industry focused education and research that benefits all British Columbians.

Get Involved

We believe in helping the next generation find a rewarding career in the construction industry. With donations from the SICA fund, we have been able to help students to experience ahands-on introduction to the trades, engineering, and science.

Students created a number of individual projects that they were able to take home, and we tried to have community impact in our class projects. We were able to build bat houses and a pollinator hotel with the help from the Women in Trades Team at OK College, and then installed them in our local greenspace. A few students also built a garden box to donate to the Lake Country Lodge and Manor. Thanks again for supporting us this year – it was a huge success at our school! Students and staff learned a lot and we have been able to open up the design space to include other classes, and have plans for our older students to work with some of our primary students in projects next year.
