CAWIC Mentorship Program


Welcome to the Mentorship Program at CAWIC!

At CAWIC, our Mentorship Program is an important initiative to fulfilling our mandate to enhance the success of women in the Canadian construction industry, through our core values of leadership, mentorship, membership and partnership.

Looking for a Mentor?

Are you interested in a career in the construction industry but unsure of where to start?
Are you already working within the industry and would like to advance?

We can help answer both of these questions by facilitating networking with our members, who can assist with advice and guidance drawn from their considerable experience in the industry. A mentor is aware of the hurdles and challenges along the way and may help an inexperienced woman overcome these hurdles before these turn into obstacles.

At CAWIC, we have a diverse membership encompassing many areas of the industry from skilled trades to project managers, general contractors, estimators, lawyers, engineers and architects.

Please forward your form to mentorship@cawic.ca and someone will be in touch with you to answer any questions you may have about the program

Willing to be a Mentor?

Are you interested in giving back to other women in the industry?
Do you have a couple of hours per month to share your knowledge and experience?

All CAWIC members are encouraged to become mentors within the Association and in their community, whether formally or informally.

We are actively looking for CAWIC members to volunteer their time for an hour or two per month to advise those members seeking guidance and support.  We need members from all areas of the industry to reply to specific questions that may be asked and/or to be teamed up with a CAWIC mentee.  This is a great way to broaden your network and to give back to other women in the industry!
