Jonathan White: St. Catharines, On
From playing football and rowing to meeting people and making great friends, high school proved to be an incredibly enjoyable time in Jonathan’s life. During grade 10 he decided he wanted to become a Boilermaker and signed up for all the Industrial Arts & Technology courses offered at his school. Jonathan completed the Welder Fitter program at Conestoga College and subsequently took employment in a fabrication shop performing structural plate fitting. Throughout this time he was continually looking for an opportunity to begin his apprenticeship in the Boilermaker trade. In 1998 he was accepted into an apprenticeship and it was at this point that Jonathan transitioned from having what he considered to be a job within the trades to the start of a career as a Red Seal Boilermaker. In 2008, he joined the Boilermakers National Training Trust Fund where he now serves as the National Training Coordinator. Jonathan sits as a Trade Board Member with the Ontario College of Trades and as a Trustee on the Boilermaker Apprenticeship and Training Trust Fund for Ontario.
