Ask Us Anything

The worst question is the one you don't ask. Starting work means a lot of questions, sometimes with not enough answers. Asking questions is a great way to learn the job and add to your own knowledge- read some of the Q&As young workers have asked us, or even ask your own.

Nothing is off topic or out of bounds- we work with health and safety experts to get you the best answer. Follow us on Instagram @parachutecanada for our weekly answer posts.
