Welcome to the Prairie Arctic Regional Council’s website. We are happy that you are interested in exploring what it means to be a part of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America. If you are already a member of the union, make sure you check out our members only area (Red tab at the top right of the page); you can request a user name and password to access it by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are a skilled tradesman or apprentice but do not belong to the union, we encourage you to check out the tabs at the top of the page corresponding to the province you are from. There you will find a brief history of the union, how to join and other information about the Prairie Arctic Regional Council and the trades that we represent. Our staff is always happy to answer any of your questions or concerns so don’t hesitate to call our office if you require additional information.
Whether it is with tools, technology or training, it is important for Union Carpenters to stay current so they can continue to be the best in the business. With that in mind THE CARPENTER HAS GONE ALL DIGITAL! As always, we include coverage of UBC councils, programs and members. But we've added interactive links to more photos, and video content. With an all-digital magazine, we use our resources well by saving printing and postage costs. We hope you enjoy the all-digital CARPENTER.
