BUILD YOUR FUTURE IN THE TRADES

Transforming the Lives of Women

For over 20 years, we've been transforming the lives of women. Through awareness, training, and opportunity we prepare women for careers leading to economic prosperity. Together with our partners, we champion a more inclusive workforce.

Women Building Futures 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.

Our areas of expertise include:

WORKFORCE ATTRACTION
Positioning construction as a first-choice career option for women; and positioning women as a viable source of quality skilled workers for Alberta’s construction sector.
ASSESSMENT AND ESSENTIAL SKILLS TRAINING
