About Sask Building Trades

Who We Are

The Saskatchewan Building Trades Council represents organized construction workers in Saskatchewan. We serve more than 7,000 members through our 12 affiliated unions, and are also affiliated with the Building Trades Department, AFL-CIO that has over 400,000 members across Canada.

We are here to help construction workers and their families achieve a high standard of living by promoting the trades and advocating for the best interests of its workers. The Council speaks on behalf of all our members with a single, unified voice to help secure better collective agreements and better conditions for tradespeople.

The Council also promotes education and training of workers in the construction industry.

Indigenous Peoples

Saskatchewan Building Trades have been committed to making the construction industry in our province an inclusive employment opportunity for Indigenous peoples. The work began with cultural competency training and hiring a labour development strategist, and evolved into a vision statement, adopted in 2017, that points toward consultation and inclusion:

Through training and the benefits of membership in affiliated unions, the Saskatchewan Building Trades will work with Indigenous people and communities to produce the best tradespeople in Saskatchewan.


The Saskatchewan Building Trades support charities within Saskatchewan that improve lives across the province.

Through our annual Dad’s Day Golf Tournament, we have been donating funds to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation for two decades. To date we’ve raised more than $300,000 to fund research to find a cure for Type 1 diabetes.

We have also recently begun donating to STARS Air Ambulance, which has served Saskatchewan since 2011.
