First deaf Canadian iron worker to receive a trade certificate

26-year-old Jonathon Anderson is the first deaf Canadian iron worker to get a red seal tradesman certificate.

The certificate allows tradespeople to use their skills anywhere in the country.

Anderson was diagnosed with a hearing impairment soon after his first birthday. But he never let this come in the way of achieving his dreams.

Anderson has helped to build famous places like Canadian Museum for Human Rights, Winnipeg Convention Centre, among others.

Anderson hopes to inspire youth with his achievements and by proving that deaf people can work with people who are not deaf.
