Industry Leaders Talking about Opportunities for Women in Construction

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.

Opportunities for Women in Construction

Working in the trades is hard work and it’s not for every man or woman. But if you are looking for a way to earn a good living, and build a career – a career in construction just might be what you’re looking for. Watch the video and listen to what women are saying about it.

Think about it - you would be earning a very nice income while learning a trade as an apprentice electrician, welder, pipefitter, plumber or any of 30 construction related trades. Or you could work as a heavy equipment operator building roads or hauling rock.
