Details will be finalized by a cross-country task force beginning September 9th, 2019, comprised of apprentices, tradeswomen, representatives from women’s organizations, labour groups, employers, educators and jurisdictional apprenticeship authorities.

Canada is going to need thousands of new trades professionals in the next five years. The national strategy will be designed to help attract more women as part of the challenge of meeting labour market and economic needs.
