Exploratory Training Programs for Women Interested in the Skilled Trades
Self-identifying women and those from equity-deserving groups have been historically under-represented in the skilled trades. With a looming labour shortage in Canada, the government, institutions, and employers are working together to create opportunities for women to explore career opportunities in the skilled trades. Below you will find a list of institutions across Canada that offer exploratory trades programs. Some programs have specific requirements applicants must meet and are located in specific provinces and territories. Additionally, some offer grants and financial support for students.
