Hear What Industry leaders are saying about WBF and our graduates on YouTube
Did you know that between 2011 and 2019 Canada’s construction industry will need to recruit approximately 320,000 workers? It’s true. And Alberta will feel this demand possibly even more so than other places. Retiring baby-boomers and global competition for workers means great career opportunities for women in construction.
