SB TireCraft Enfield needed an apprentice who wanted to learn all aspects of the trade, would value the community, and the integrity of the business. The Office to Advance Women Apprentices matched them with a direct entry apprentice from the corridor community.
With our partners at the Canada’s Building Trades Unions and Manitoba Building Trades, we’re building success for tradeswomen all across Manitoba.
