At Canada Water Connect, our aim is to connect local people to the opportunities being created by the Canada Water Masterplan.

Canada Water Connect was established in 2022 between British Land, the developer of the Canada Water Masterplan, and ELBA’s, an organisation with 30 years’ experience in enabling successful partnerships between business and the community.

 The Canada Water Masterplan will create a new town centre with new homes, offices, public spaces, facilities, shops, restaurants, and jobs.

 We are partnering with local residents, schools, business, charities and other organisations to ensure that local people can access the opportunities coming forward.

Employment and training opportunities

Over a thousand construction jobs

The Canada Water Masterplan is one of London’s biggest and most exciting development projects in a generation, spanning 53 acres. We expect over a thousand construction jobs, including apprenticeships, to be created by the Masterplan, and anticipate around 20,000 people working within the development once completed 

Meaningful, sustained employment

There will be jobs available at various levels in many sectors, including construction, retail, hospitality, leisure, estate management, and with the many businesses that will be located here in Canada Water. We are working with a number of referral partners including Southwark Works, Construction Youth Trust, the Southwark Construction Skills Centre and many others, to get local people into meaningful, sustained employment.

Finding the right people for the right jobs

With the construction of the first phase of the masterplan underway, we are currently looking for dry liners, bricklayers,  plumbers, electricians and more. In addition to finding the right people for the right jobs, Canada Water Connect offers a range of employment initiatives including CV support, mentorship, career insights and more.
