Trade Journey is a 16-week program designed for women who like working with their hands, who have already experienced some work in either construction, renovation, mining, or maintenance positions, or want to make a transition into a career in the trades.

Our program offers the ability to experience trades and will help build the confidence and skills necessary to enter these traditionally male-dominated fields.

Participants in the program explore various trades through basic training and projects in order to decide which one fits best – along with a built-in fitness program to help build physical fitness and strength at the work-site! We provide Personal Protective Equipment and assist participants in getting all the Safety Tickets needed for the industry.
