Executive Secretary Treasurer, Carpenters’ District Council of Ontario
Ucal Powell immigrated to Canada from Jamaica in 1969, joining the Carpenters’ Union a year later in 1970. Under his leadership, the Carpenters’ Union built a world-class apprenticeship program, earning a reputation as a giving and compassionate organization. Powell was a big believer in volunteering and particularly believed unions had a responsibility to give back. In 2011, he was appointed to the Order of Ontario.
