James Barry appointed to Board of Skilled Trades Ontario

January 26, 2022

Skilled Trades Ontario has released the names of those appointed to their Board. James Barry, Executive Secretary Treasurer of the IBEW Construction Council of Ontario has a seat.

I  am very honored to be appointed to the Board of Directors of the newly established Skilled Trades Ontario, a Crown agency established by the Ontario government to help oversee the training and promotion of skilled trades.

I look forward to working with the Ontario government and the other Directors of the Board to help ensure we have a robust system that leads the way in training and safety for our skilled workers.

I would also like to congratulate Melissa Young on her appointment as CEO and Registrar of the new agency. She brings a wealth of experience and knowledge that will be instrumental in building a strong and effective organization that benefits tradespeople.

Monte McNaughton, Minister of Labour, Training and Skills Development, has been a tireless advocate for skilled trades and I’d like to congratulate him and his staff for their hard work in establishing this new agency.
