Building Opportunities: Advancing Women in 
Non-Traditional Occupations

Did you know that only 6,515 out of 21,000 journeypersons and apprentices in Hamilton are women? 

If you are a woman who is currently employed in skilled trades, or have been, we welcome your insights. 

Workforce Planning Hamilton and YWCA Hamilton want to hear your thoughts on workplaces that work for women in the industrial, construction, and motive power trades sectors. 

Our goal is to advise employers on best practices for recruiting, retaining, and advancing women. Your feedback will be used to assist in the development of an employer toolkit. 

Please take the time to complete a brief survey and share it with others who might be interested.
