HEDLEY Fan? Then this is for you

Would you like to win tickets to see multi-platinum recording group HEDLEY? How about meet the band backstage?

Then don’t miss this opportunity to win a once-in-a-lifetime experience! The Ontario College of Trades (the College) is holding a contest, sponsored by Universal Music Canada, and the lucky winner will receive two tickets PLUS a meet and greet with HEDLEY.

Go to and enter. The contest runs until Oct.29.

It’s all part of the College’s Tune In, Trade Up campaign, which highlights the exciting and rewarding opportunities in the skilled trades. You love music, right? Then you should also know, if you’re starting to plan your future, that there are many skilled trades associated with the live music industry.

These jobs pay well and are in demand. They range from carpenters and electricians to cooks, hairstylists, truck and coach technicians, heavy equipment operators and many others. Maybe one is right for you.

If this sounds interesting, make sure to check out the College’s website to learn about the various skilled trades out there and how you can get started. For inspiration, watch this behind-the-scenes video that was filmed this past summer at the WayHome and Boots & Hearts festivals.

Follow the Ontario College of Trades on Twitter and Instagram for contest announcements and other updates.
