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.

"I joined the Pre-Apprenticeship program with the YWCA and after my training became a first year Apprentice taking a job with a large Painting-Decorating company in Toronto. Since starting there I have been recognized for my skills and moved up the chain and developed my craft to the highest level I never dreamed possible."
