CAWIC Calls on Construction Industry to Promote Women’s Advancement

Toronto, Ontario – (August 26, 2014) - The Canadian Association of Women in Construction (CAWIC) launched its Women’s Advancement Project in St. John’s, Newfoundland today.  CAWIC is calling on industry employers, unions and educational partners to collaborate with CAWIC to address the shortage of skilled trades in Canada by promoting the entry and advancement of women into leadership roles within the construction industry.

Earlier this year, CAWIC was awarded a grant from the Government of Canada for $249,900 through Status of Women Canada. The grant will fund a three-year project to conduct research and develop, with collaboration from industry employers and female participants, an action plan to open doors for women’s entry, retention and advancement into leadership roles within the construction industry.

CAWIC is actively seeking employer partners who share its vision to promote change and break down barriers for women in the industry, to create an action plan that makes economic sense, is realistic and attainable. Industry employers with operations in Alberta, Ontario and Newfoundland/Labrador have the opportunity to get directly involved in this important initiative.
