Kendall Ansell is an award-winning interior designer and owner of both Kendall Ansell Interiors and Belle Construction.

It all Started at Home

From early on, I knew I would be working in the business of homes. Growing up, I spent most weekends helping my Dad, who worked as a contractor, with family projects. As soon as I set foot on a build, I felt inspired by the way you could take something out of nothing and facilitate a home for people. This early passion blossomed into a fascination to understand how people live and make their spaces a reflection of who they are.

When it came time to pursue my passions, I moved my way through architectural drafting during post-secondary studies, then transitioned into the design. Following the completion of school, I created ‘Kendall Ansell Interiors’, an interior design firm, in 2010. Through this, I executed countless successful projects alongside my team and was the recipient of the Best Interior Designer Award from Burnaby Now 6 years in a row. The best part of my career is making peoples’ dreams into a reality, which is what has held true throughout each project I do.


Why Belle Construction?

After years of working in the design trade and visiting job sites, the discrimination against women was very evident. It never sat right with me that an industry which should bring joy and creativity had fostered such a hostile environment. To understand how this became the norm, a key factor is that the industry as a whole is male-dominated – in 2020 it was documented that only 5% of tradespeople were women. This number is far too low to ensure there is true gender equality throughout the trades.

This was an issue I couldn’t ignore, which led to the creation of my Vancouver-based construction business, Belle Construction. At Belle, we have a female-led team and are breaking the barriers that have previously existed for women in the construction trade. It was important to me to create a positive place to work where women and members of the 2SLGBTQA+ community would feel safe and have the freedom to explore their passion to execute beautiful projects. Since its creation, we’ve been able to tackle countless projects all while setting a new precedent for work environments in our industry.

Through Belle Construction, we submitted an application to the Human Rights Tribunal to exclusively hire and recruit women without it being penalized as discrimination. We outlined the hiring issues, gender inequalities and safety issues in a lengthy essay that ended up being approved – making us one of the first companies to ever achieve this feat. Belle Construction is at the start of a new era that prioritizes the safety and success of women in an industry that has previously discarded them.

My efforts to protect women’s safety extend beyond just Belle Construction and have been an incredible segue for partnerships like with the WISH Drop-in Centre Society, which prioritizes the health, safety, and wellbeing of women experiencing poverty – 60% of whom are Indigenous. Through Belle, we are able to connect with other organizations that have the same goals and find solutions to fight gender inequality together.


How to Rebuild

Belle Construction is just the start of what’s needed to rebuild the construction and trades industries. We’re also taking action by franchising Belle with the goal of creating opportunities across Canada for women and allowing other female leaders to run well-established construction companies. This, along with initiatives from other female-led organizations, will push us further towards a more equitable industry.

I am also keen to increase thought leadership amongst industry peers. The more awareness we can bring to the issue, the better. By sharing my story and the success I have experienced through pursuing equity in trades, I hope it inspires other women to do the same and give hope to younger generations looking to pursue trades.

I believe that awareness at a young age will be an incredible way to get more women to enroll in trade programs and eventually join us on job sites. As many children’s toys and books are highly gendered, it is still challenging for young girls to explore passions that are deemed “male.” As such, I wrote a children’s book, “Belle and Friends Build a House,” to show young girls that the industry is ready to welcome them.

I hope to inspire others to take their part in rebuilding an old system, transforming it into a new one that is welcoming and safe for all genders and orientations to thrive. Belle Construction is just the first “renovation project” of many.

Chef Donald Guthro - An Inspiring Canadian Feature

Chef Donald Guthro - An Inspiring Canadian FeatureChef Donald Guthro was born and raised in rural Canada. He received his Commerce degree and professional Chef training at George Brown College in Ontario. Don then set out to refine his skills and educate himself internationally in Europe, working throughout France and Italy while learning the trade and traditions from old-world culinary pioneers. He also witnessed life in impoverished regions with high unemployment which would later become the catalyst or motivator for an entirely new way of looking at business. When Don returned to Canada, he worked as Chef and Executive Chef in some of Canada’s top restaurants across the country as well as working chef at the Olympic Games. In addition, he formed a catering company and restaurant consulting firm where he assisted other restaurateurs to become successful in their businesses. Chef Don Guthro arrived in Vancouver as an executive chef before becoming the director of a renowned local and international culinary school. However, the high cost of culinary tuition, lack of affordable housing and skilled entry-level cooks in the area left Chef Don Guthro to ponder social enterprise as the vehicle to educate Canada’s top cooks.


In 2010 he created the NS Culinary Educational Society becoming D.I.C.E.D Culinary School. Through his own initiative and resources, he is fulfilling his dream to help aspiring cooks get the education and training for a successful future in the culinary industry. After 40 years and counting in the culinary field, Chef Don Guthro shows no sign of slowing down. His abundant experience has led him to create an innovative, self-funded socially good business model investing in people. Proceeds from his catering company, restaurant and culinary consultations are used to support D.I.C.E.D Culinary School by providing affordable education for all and full sponsorship for those that qualify. While Chef Don Guthro plans to continue his direct involvement in the day-to-day running of the company, he hopes to find time to author educational texts that support culinary growth and success in all communities.


We are a social purpose business situated in Vancouver, BC. We currently operate a restaurant (NSCS Discovery), catering company (Culinary Choreography), condiment line, and run meal programs for the at-risk and homeless.

What do we do? With the proceeds of these ventures, we offset the cost of our culinary training program so that it is accessible to anyone interested in pursuing a career in the culinary industry. We recently put the school online so that we could not only lift the financial restrictions of culinary training but the geographical ones as well.

Our School: DICED (Diverse Innovation in Culinary Educational Development). DICED is an online educational program that allows students to complete the required course work over a 40 week period while working and gaining experience simultaneously. We offset the cost of the tuition so that the amount owed by the student is minimal. It is our hope that by graduating without debt, we will strengthen the skilled labour force of the culinary industry. As it stands right now, only a fraction of culinary school graduates remains in the industry due to exorbitant debt load. They are forced to seek out higher-paying jobs and in doing so, give up on a career they are passionate about, which means the industry loses prospective talent. Our online program is a win-win for both students and industry alike.

What jobs are in demand in Canada?

Canada is one of the most attractive countries for job seekers. Here is a list of the most in-demand jobs in Canada. Read here for more details!


What jobs are in demand in Canada?

One way to move to live in Canada is to immigrate via Express Entry Canada. It is an economic immigration program through which the Canadian government attracts talented people abroad.

Canada is struggling with a lack of labor and developing the national economy. Potential immigrants must understand if there is a demand for their knowledge and skills in Canada. Today’s article will give you a list of the most in-demand jobs in Canada. Read on!

Engineers

Among the developed countries, Canada has an exceptional reputation. Its mining industry is extensive, there is oil, gas, minerals, and non-ferrous metals, so business has increased demand for qualified specialists in these areas.

IT Professionals

The rapid digitalization of the Canadian economy has led to an acute shortage of programmers. Canada invites mainly software developers to work. Canada is the second country to allow transactions in cryptocurrencies officially.

It is the first to seek to transfer the work of all bodies and enterprises to blockchain-based technologies. Therefore, jobs in the IT sector are increasing every other day. So, if you are an IT professional, you can apply for jobs via different online channels.

Business Analysts

The growth of domestic production in Canada generates a correspondingly high demand for people who can lead the development strategy of enterprises in all sectors. Therefore, the Canadian government and companies need analysts, economists, and programmers ready to develop their businesses.

Accountants

The rapid development of the private sector in Canada and the increase in the number and consolidation of private firms creates a corresponding demand for specialists who can audit a company and put its financial accounts in order.

Nurses

The services of nursing professionals have always been in high demand in Canada. It helps a lot because the Canadian population is aging rapidly, requiring a more significant number of professionals. The best part is that this is a service demanded in all regions, which increases the chances of hiring more.

Software Engineers

Canada’s web, telecommunications, and mobile technology sectors have increased the demand for more software engineers, programmers, and designers. While these professions are often self-taught, experience, skill, and creativity are the distinguishing factors here.

Data Scientists

The use of the internet and mobile devices culminate in exponentially increasing amounts of data. As a consequence of this, the demand for people who can interpret them is also growing proportionately. Data scientists and statisticians have extensive training and knowledge to use mathematical techniques and build models that solve problems and predict consumer behavior and outcomes.

Public Relations Professionals

The way of doing business is gradually changing with the wave of digital transformation spreading worldwide. That’s why organizations and companies are looking for marketing professionals, public relations managers, and business development executives with experience in this area.

Truck Drivers

Canada is a country that has a gigantic territory and a large number of roads and highways. Because of this, its economy is highly dependent on truck drivers to transport cargo and goods, but the country does not have enough professionals to fill the gap of workers in the area who are retiring.

Psychologists

With more attention to mental health and wellness issues across all population sectors, psychologists are one of Canada’s most sought-after professionals for years to come.

By joining this career, you can offer counseling and therapy to people struggling with depression, anxiety, and other chronic neurological conditions. You can choose from a wide range of specialties, including child psychology, behavioral psychology, and cognitive psychology.

Final Words

Today, Canada is a dynamically developing country in which the government actively supports the development of new technologies and industries. In addition, the richest natural resources and a small population coupled with a lack of engineering personnel make Canada a very hospitable country to labor migration.

Thus, unlike in many developed countries, inviting an employer in Canada can be a reason to participate in the employment programs by the country’s government. These are a few best jobs in Canada with escalating demands. So, if you have experience and skills in these areas, you can apply for a job. Until Next Time!
