Canada’s construction industry wants and needs women.
Right now, as many as 1.4 million Canadians make a living in construction. But that’s not nearly enough. The industry requires about 300,000 new workers this decade to counter baby boom retirements. While skilled tradespeople are in high demand, so are many other professionals, from project managers to superintendents and estimators. That leaves the field wide open, with more opportunities than ever for women to succeed and lead in construction.
