The ITA Women in Trades Training Initiative Marks Milestone Participant Numbers on International Women’s Day

The ITA Women in Trades Training (WITT) initiative, funded through the Canada-British Columbia Labour Market Agreement (LMA) and overseen by the Industry Training Authority (ITA), is marking its fourth year with the milestone of 1,500 women participating in trades training programs across British Columbia.

The Initiative connects women of diverse backgrounds with funded opportunities to pursue non-traditional careers by training to be plumbers, electricians, carpenters, sheet metal workers and other skilled tradespeople.

“By supporting more than 1,500 women through the Women in Trades Training initiative, we’re helping them develop the confidence and work-ready skills they need to enter a career in the skilled trades and help meet future labour demands in B.C.,” says Jessi Zielke, Director, Strategic Initiatives, ITA.
