Supporting opportunities for women in the skilled trades is something Carpenters’ Local 579, Millwrights’ Local 1009, and the Atlantic Canada Regional Council of Carpenters, Millwrights and Allied Workers takes seriously. Through our affiliation with the Office to Advance Women Apprentices (OAWA), we take a proactive approach in increasing employment opportunities and access to apprenticeship programs for women in the trades.
Of course, more work can always be done. This is why OAWA forms strong bonds with not only industry but government and training stakeholders to ensure continued growth of their programs.
