I am interested in Skilled Trades

YWCA Toronto offers women a chance to build a sustainable future in non-traditional occupations for women. We partner with colleges, unions, employers and business leaders to provide competitive, gender-based and inclusive training programs for women interested in entering the construction, landscaping and technology industries.

"The programs at YWCA Toronto are great! One of the reasons I came here was because it was catered to women. Knowing that I was going to be with other women that can relate to what I’m going through is great."
