Students experience all aspects of the residential construction industry by building
a home themselves. They experience the enormous pride and satisfaction that
comes from completing a major project that contributes to the well-being of a
family in the community. Students are guided throughout the home-building
process by seasoned trades people from a variety of trades. Students gain sought-after certifications that will increase their qualifications and augment their resumes.
Students earn six credits in this program and can gain up to 640 hours towards
their apprenticeship through the apprenticeship board and the Saskatchewan Youth
HCAP is open to all Grade 11 and 12 public school students in the Saskatoon area.
We make every effort to ensure students stay connected to their home schools by
suggesting that Grade 12 students attend during the first semester, allowing them
to graduate with their peers. We also support school teams and students can
travel to their home school for sports and clubs. HCAP works in the community
and we are partners with Habitat for Humanity and other community groups.
All students will complete the Safety Construction Orientation Training online course. We ask that all students bring a 2G flashdrive/USB. All necessary safety wear is supplied, except safety work boots.
The deadline for applications for the 2022-23 school year is April 1, 2022. For more information on what HCAP offers students download a copy of the HCAP program page. More information is available from your school's Student Services office or Mount Royal Collegiate. It is recommended that students have their Construction 10 credit before participating in HCAP.
