The Newfoundland Labrador Building Trades Council launched a new brand and logo last week, and also continued with its charitable ways.

The brand, Trades NL: Building Trades of Newfoundland and Labrador, is a result of several months of work by M-5 Marketing Communications, according to a new release from the organization.

The new brand and logo was revealed Thursday at the Trades NL office, where 16 grants of $1,000 each were also presented to community/youth groups as part of the initiative.

“This is the result of a significant branding initiative for us, and represents a new beginning for our organization and members,” said NL Building Construction Trades Council executive director Darin King.

Building trades members were invited to nominate a group or organization of their choosing to receive a grant to mark the brand launch.

The grant recipients were:

- Daffodil Place

- Conception Harbour Recreation Playground Fund

- Vera Perlin Society

- Janeway Children’s Hospital

- Gathering Place

- Burin Peninsula North Special Olympics

- Grand Bank/Fortune Special Olympics

- CBR Bantam B All-Star Hockey Team

- St. John’s Junior Caps Hockey Team

- St. Lawrence Softball Field Restoration Project

- Choices for Youth

- Ronald McDonald House

- Children’s Wish

- Alzheimer Society of NL

- United Towns Pirates Minor Hockey Association

- Salvation Army New Hope Community Centre
