GTTI Skilled Trades Institute is taking the necessary safety precautions and is continuing to monitor the COVID-19 situation as guided by the federal and provincial public health authorities, as well as York Region authorities. For more information, please contact us.

With a $4 million nod from the province, along with more than $2 million from the town, Georgina Trades Training Inc. (GTTI) can get moving, building and erecting a pipe dream — a dedicated Skilled Trades Institute right here in Georgina. 

Under scrutiny of licensed professionals following strict building code guidelines, trainees will build modular homes [].

“Students are not building for the sake of building something,” said GTTI chairperson John De Faveri. “In current [skilled trades training] models, students are building partial walls using recycled material. Building it and taking it down. But at the end of this program, there will be a sellable product.”

At the end of each 26-week program, GTTI will have several 1,100 to 1,200 square-foot modular bungalows along with hundreds of skilled tradespeople who are job ready.
