Women Apprentices

what we do

Office to Advance Women Apprentices SK

The Office to Advance Women Apprentices Saskatchewan was created in 2019 to engage and support women apprentices working in construction trades in the province. 

This includes providing career services, employment supports, and networking opportunities for tradeswomen. The program will engage and build partnerships with over 75 key stakeholders including employers, trades unions and training providers to improve participation and success of women in the trades. The program will also develop and maintain a registry database to track services provided and apprenticeship numbers of tradeswomen.

Our work includes:

  • Connecting tradeswomen to employers
  • Career services, employment supports, and networking opportunities for tradeswomen,
  • Engaging and building partnerships with key stakeholders including employers, trades unions, and training providers to improve participation and success of women in the trades, and
  • Development and maintenance of a registry database to track services provided and apprenticeship numbers of tradeswomen

The Office to Advance Women Apprentices project was started in Newfoundland and Labrador where, today, women account for approximately 13 percent of the skilled construction trades workforce, compared to a four percent rate nationally. Building on the success of the Newfoundland and Labrador office, the model is now being replicated in five other provinces, including Nova Scotia, Manitoba and Saskatchewan where at least 750 women, including Indigenous women, are expected to be served through the offices.
