CBC News Life Under Construction

Those who qualify must overcome past traumas, fight addictions and manage complicated parenting challenges to find success. Can Cory, whose mother was killed by his alcoholic father, put his traumatic past behind him to move forward? Can a single mother of three, Marylou, juggle her family responsibilities with a career? Will expectant father Colten conquer his drug and alcohol habits in order to provide for his new family? Can construction expert Lance combine his work skills with the life skills he needs to consistently show up to work on time? Instructors Dwayne Allan and Jane Gattinger are faced with over 150 applicants who all need the program. They have to decide who needs and wants it the most. Once they make the short list, students must stay drug and alcohol free during the entire placement, and demonstrate their commitment through attendance and punctuality.
