Building a local skilled workforce
Women Building Futures is commited to help build a highly skilled local workforce. The looming retirement of the "baby boomer" trades people, coupled with economic recovery across the country, means our supply of skilled labour in Alberta may not meet future demands.
Opening doors for Women
We saw an opportunity to help fill this gap and at the same time give women an opportunity to achieve well-paying and meaningful employment. Industry recognizes that we will have to source and train all available workers including women and Aboriginal Peoples. WBF is in the unique position to reach out, train, and prepare women for the realities of working in the construction industry.
Truth is women are interested - and they can do the job.
