A millwright is a tradesperson who installs, maintains and repairs stationary industrial machinery and mechanical equipment by interpreting drawings, performing layouts and assembling parts until they are in perfect working order.
While the majority of millwrights in Canada are known as either industrial mechanics or construction millwrights, several other job titles can be applied to the trade.
Construction millwrights and industrial mechanics work in a variety of industries, and can pursue complementary training and develop additional skills in steel fabrication, welding, machining, electronics, hydraulics or pneumatics.
