HERE IS WHAT PROGRAM PARTICIPANTS HAVE TO SAY:

  • “Without the JCP program we couldn’t have done many of the labour intensive and innovative pieces that have made this project such a success. The benefit to the community and to the region is tremendous. This facility is extremely welcoming and our visitor numbers increased 43% in the first year since we opened. The building really is a cornerstone to the Railtown visioning for the next 25 years. It has transformed into a community showcase. The participants who worked on this project have done amazing work that they can be proud of.”

  • “The JCP program played an integral in role in this successful project. Program financial support for a project manager and participants supported the project moving forward utilizing labour intensive and innovative processes. Participants worked on everything from demolition to construction and finishing. Many participants went on to obtain apprenticeships.”
