A Community Action Strategy
The National Strategy to Support Women in the Trades was developed by employers, labour representatives, educators and equity representatives from multiple trades and regions to create sustainable and measurable change for women. This effort is being led by the Canadian Apprenticeship Forum (CAF-FCA), a national, non-profit organization.
The Strategy includes the following goals:
- Increase the number of women apprentices, journeypersons and supervisors where they are underrepresented in proportion to the total number in a skilled trades workplace.
- Create respectful and welcoming workplaces through meaningful policy and education. Workplaces should be safe, healthy, inclusive and equitable, free of harassment, bullying, and discrimination.
