A MILLION DOLLARS FOR WOMEN IN TRADES
On January 22 the Canadian government committed a million dollars for women in trades in Alberta. The funds will go to Women Building Futures. WFB is an amazing organization that has been helping women get training and work placement in the trades since 1998. This news story goes on to say that the company TFL Industrial worked with WFB in the past and did a successful 8 week program training women in welding. From this program, 7 of the 8 women who graduated are still working at the company today.
Being from Vancouver Island I am all for local opportunities and development, but sometimes we need to work together as Canadians to build a stronger all-gender trades workforce so here is a link to this company in Alberta that is empowering women and here are some of the job opportunies they may have for you.
