CAF-FCA completes pilot for Women in the Skilled Trades program

The Canadian Apprenticeship Forum (CAF-FCA) has completed the pilot for its new National Leadership Development Program for Women in the Skilled Trades.

The pilot ended in December 2022, with the first cohort of 14 participants successfully earning a course certificate. Participants were able to learn effective strategies and gain practical tips to empower them as leaders in their workplaces and the community.  The program focused on mentorship strategies, taking leadership roles on the job site and in unions, communication, resolving conflict, and speaking with confidence.

The free program was developed in partnership with the Office to Advance Women Apprentices, and is available to all tradeswomen including Indigenous peoples, LGBTQ2S+ individuals, immigrants, persons with disabilities, and those from racialized groups.
