Do you recognize this mug? You’ve probably seen him on TV. Canadian Deck Guru, Paul Lafrance (Paul Lafrance Design, Pickering, Ontario) – a good friend of Canadian Contractor – is looking for an up-and-coming novice carpenter to jump on his crew to help construct his next back yard transformation. Some experience with woodworking and power tools is necessary and the prospective carpenter’s assistant needs to have strength, stamina, and a quick wit. (Okay, the wit is optional but said builder has to at least promise to laugh at Paul’s jokes.) Most projects will be completed in the east Greater Toronto Area and Durham Region. Applicant will need their own transportation. Tools are provided onsite. Some projects will be filmed for TV and/or Social Media. If you know someone who is looking for an entry-level position on a construction and renovation crew, please direct them to to find out if they would be a good fit.
