Since the BCCA launched the EU-Step program in October 2006, Brodersen has helped to bring 130 skilled workers to B.C. and is currently working on another 20.
Most of these workers are carpenters, roofers, bricklayers, ironworkers, glaziers and electricians. About a third of these workers gain their permanent residency, under the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).
