WBF Introduces the Trans Mountain Pipeline Construction Labourer Training Program

Starts July 4, 2017


Application Deadline: April 17, 2017


 This program will prepare Indigenous women for safe and productive entry into the pipeline construction field.

The 8-week program covers safety training, workplace procedures, workplace culture preparation, fitness awareness, financial literacy, career development, cultural programming, hands-on skills training and job search skills.

All training will take place at WBF’s classroom and training facility in Edmonton, while the employment opportunities with the construction of the expansion project are located within the Project corridor between Strathcona County and the BC/AB border. Housing at WBF, which includes 42 self-contained subsidized apartments, 18 of which are for single mothers with children, will be available for women during the program.

Upon successful completion of this program, employment assistance and job retention support is provided to ensure a strong return on investment for the sponsor, the graduate and Women Building Futures.
