Carpenters’ Union Local 27 recently hosted a large delegation of visiting Nigerian mayors, city builders, planners and advocates for women, offering the visitors a tour of the College of Carpenters and Allied Trades (CCAT) training centre in Vaughan, Ont. Among the hosts for the May 9 event were several rank and file carpenters of Nigerian and Senegalese origin.
