Ryley LaFrance - 20

Industrial Control
Edmonton, Alberta


I had the opportunity to work alongside my father at a young age doing odd jobs such as painting, dry walling and construction. This allowed me to observe quite a few different trades. One trade that stood out to me was my father’s, who is an electrician. He would let me work beside him to watch the intricacies of his installations. It made me want to learn more therefore in grade eleven I made the decision to pursue a career as an electrician.

Interesting Fact

My dad is my biggest source of inspiration. He has exposed me to experiences that have led me to pursue a career in the trades and for that I am grateful.
