Who We Are
York Industrial Trades Academy is a Trades school located in Vaughan, Ontario, created and started by Burnco Manufacturing recognized as one of Canada’s premier fabricators. Burnco Manufacturing brings over 20 years of experience as a structural steel fabricator and erector.
With over a quarter of a million tons of steelwork to our credit and proudly contributing to landmarks like the Air Canada Centre and the Peace Bridge.
As an experienced and trusted manufacturer and fabricator, Burnco long ago recognized a growing need in the market, and created an academy to train the next generation of skilled tradespeople.
The York Industrial Trades Academy (YITA) educates and trains tomorrow’s tradespeople so that they can succeed in the current market.
Students get the opportunity to not only learn from licensed professionals in a steel manufacturing facility but they get to work side-by-side with their instructors on real projects, instead of a simulation of the work environment. By doing so, YITA ensures that tradespeople are ready to confidently step into the industry.
