WE BUILD WHAT OTHERS CAN ONLY IMAGINE
Manitoba Building Trades (MBT) represents the common goals of over 10,000 construction and trades professionals across our 13 member unions. We promote the interests of our member unions and engage in project partnerships to deliver safe, skilled and highly productive labour.
We believe that unionized construction labour is the most competitive alternative for public and private project proponents in the industrial, commercial and institutional sectors. We deliver cost competitive skilled labour while maintaining the highest standards of training, wages and benefits and workplace safety.
In partnership with other provincial councils we are part of a network of 500,000+ Canadian construction professionals.
Manitoba Building Trades has a long, active history which began as the Winnipeg Building Trades Council on March 9, 1909. In 1943, the council began province-wide representation and it was renamed the Winnipeg and Vicinity Building Trades Council. In 1995, the Manitoba Building and Construction Trades Council was adopted. Today, we’re simply known as MBT.
