All Canadians benefit from the work of the boilermaker and welder trades. Advanced boilermaker technologies are critical in the construction and operation of most industrial plants and power generating facilities. Boilermakers and welders help provide many conveniences we rely on in our daily lives.  Boilermakers build large tanks, heavy tubing, and pressure vessels for power plants, refineries, pulp mills and chemical manufacturers. They assemble, erect, and maintain boilers, tanks, pressure vessels, heat exchangers, pollution control systems, furnaces, condensers, and process towers. To do these tasks, Boilermakers can often be found using hoists, rigging, cutting, and welding equipment along with specialized tools and hardware required by drawings and project goals. A Boilermaker member is a team player, committed to safety, reliability, physical fitness, and has the perseverance and patience to get the job done correctly done right. Boilermakers must be able to receive and follow instructions and be comfortable working as part of a team. Boilermakers are often expected to work in cramped, uncomfortable positions and at great heights in inclement weather—a positive attitude is therefore a must. Boilermakers have a long and colourful history and are always looking to the future to find the best opportunities for our members.
