We chat with father and business owner, Noema Johnson, about how he not only encouraged his daughter to take up a trade but how he is actively helping her to succeed in an electrical career... Hamilton based Noema, has worked in the electrical trade for the last 38 years. He's spent the last 10 years encouraging his daughter, Demi, to "jump into a trade".

I come home, and I'm like, “I left it nice and tidy, what happened?”.  Michelle and her son moved into their home three years ago, and with a laugh explains “how things were starting to fall apart and in need of repair”. It wasn't only hard finding the tim
