Tradeworks Custom Products welcomed Dawn Chubai , Live Eye Host for Breakfast TV (City TV Vancouver), early in the day June 12, 2012. Tradeworks Custom Products (TCP) is a unique Social Enterprise that employs and encourages women to explore careers in manufacturing, carpentry and other trades. TCP produces and sells a variety of wooden corporate gift items and custom products to client specifications. The business is local, green, and women friendly!
The products vary — special boxes, pens, cutting boards, plaques, planters, display cases, unique magnets, business cards, business card holders, decorative gift crates, etc… The seasonal laser engraved Christmas Ornaments are a very special item.
Primarily serving women from the inner city, many on income assistance, the business provides them employment experience, workplace & technical skills, and an employment reference to boost their future job search odds. The business is matched with a training program that introduces women to potential careers in the trades. For many women coming out of the training program TCP is the logical next step.
