Transforming the Lives of Women


Since 1998, WBF has been the leader in preparing women for economically prosperous careers in industries where women have historically been under-represented. These careers lead to economic freedom, personal confidence and growth that are transformational for women, their families and their communities. WBF has extensive experience recruiting and ensuring career success for women within these industries at a consistent employment rate of 90 per cent.

WBF respectfully acknowledges that we are located on Treaty 6 territory, a traditional gathering place for diverse Indigenous peoples including the Cree, Blackfoot, Metis, Nakota Sioux, Dene, Ojibway/ Saulteaux/Anishinaabe, Inuit, and many others whose histories, languages, and cultures continue to influence our vibrant community.

A Social Purpose Organization (SPO) and registered charity, WBF is valued for its uncompromising approach to meeting the needs of women and industry by recruiting the right people and providing them with the right training.  Employers and women trust WBF’s methodology.
