Holland College, Construction Association of PEI, PEI partner to build tiny homes for social housing registry


Holland College has partnered with the Government of Prince Edward Island and the Construction Association of PEI to create 32 tiny homes for Islanders on the social housing registry. Holland College students from programs such as Carpentry, Construction Electrical, and Plumbing will be involved in the project. Those participating through the Construction Association of PEI’s Discover Carpentry Program will be paid as they receive apprenticeship hours toward their Red Seal Certifications. “This project involves three of our Summerside based trades programs, so it is gratifying that our students’ hands-on training will have a meaningful impact on PEI’s housing crisis,” said Holland College President Dr Sandy MacDonald.
