Other Ways to Participate

There are many ways your company can take part in the Corporate Readiness Training Program besides offering a work experience placement.

The Company Level

Here are three examples of innovative partnerships between CRTP and local companies:


Since 2007, TRICO homes has awarded a scholarship, which is for the full amount of the tuition for CRTP, to 5 CRTP students. This has allowed these students to benefit from the program and start their careers here in Canada.

Jacqueline and Desmond Lai Award

The Lai Family has donated funds to CRTP to support the incremental costs associated with travelling to a work experience placement outside Calgary. This was awarded to one individual from the January 2009 intake who secured a work placement in Edmonton.

United Way of Calgary
