Glazier and Metal Technicians are transforming their trade name to “Architectural Glass & Metal Technician” (glaziers) as recommended by the Provincial Advisory Committee on apprenticeship for the trade. Glaziers are workers that install architectural metal frames and glass into buildings primarily in the commercial and institutional sectors. Glazing and glass finishes on buildings can become very artistic. Buildings such as the Royal Ontario Museum and the Opera Centre in Toronto are examples. The industry is diverse with projects such as office towers in large cities to automatic doors at the grocery store. Apprenticeships are available through the OIFSC and the MTCU.
