The Cabinetmaking program prepares the candidate to become a cabinetmaker. A cabinetmaker manufactures products out of wood, veneer and laminate, such as furniture, and residential, commercial, industrial and institutional furniture. A cabinetmaker also manufactures architectural products such as paneling, trim, interior doors and windows for homes, stairs, balconies, etc.

The work consists of planning the manufacturing of a project, making an object, assembling pieces, sanding and preparing a product for finishing, installing the product where permitted and providing technical support.

Cabinetmakers work mainly in companies that do custom work for original products according to a client’s request. A smaller number work in assembly lines as well as microbusinesses.

Persons holding a Secondary School Diploma or its recognized equivalent, for example, an Attestation of Equivalence of Secondary V studies, or a postsecondary diploma such as the Diploma of College Studies or a Bachelor's degree
