The Island School of Building Arts shared with us the availability of two French students in the ESB (Wood engineering school), in first year. They must do a work placement abroad of two months (June and July 2018). They are passionate for log-home construction and Canadian’s culture and dream to work in a log home company. They have been working in the carpentry for five years, still now. In fact, they are in this school in apprenticeship.

Consequently, they are looking for some company in British Columbia or else, that can welcome two workers for two months.

Please contact them directly if you can help them realize their apprenticeship and Canadian dream!
