One of CAWIC’s continued mandates is to promote education and encourage women to pursue careers in the construction industry. Each year the Bursary Committee selects the successful recipients of CAWIC Bursaries from post-secondary applicants. This year CAWIC is honoured to commemorate the following distinguished women, who have supported the organization since its inception and are true champions of Women in Construction!
