Transforming the Lives of Women

Who-we-are_1000W

Women Building Futures (WBF) transforms women's lives. Through awareness, training, and opportunity we prepare women for careers leading to economic prosperity. Together with our partners, we champion a more inclusive workforce.

We offer industry recognized training for women looking to enter the construction, maintenance, transportation and home building industries. Over the last 20 years, we have grown to become a leading force, working alongside industry, government and communities to provide some of the best skilled trades programming in Canada.

Women Building Futures respectfully acknowledges that we are located on Treaty 6 territory, a traditional gathering place for diverse Indigenous peoples including the Cree, Blackfoot, Metis, Nakota Sioux, Dene, Ojibway/ Saulteaux/Anishinaabe, Inuit, and many others whose histories, languages, and cultures continue to influence our vibrant community. 

Our areas of expertise include:

  • Workforce Attraction

    Positioning construction as a first-choice career option for women; and positioning women as a viable source of quality skilled workers for Alberta’s construction sector.
  • Assessment and Essential Skills Training

    Helping women make an informed career decision about a career in trades and address gaps in essential skills.
  • Workforce Training

    Preparing women for success through skills training, safety certification, Workplace Culture Awareness©, fitness and academic upgrading.
  • Workforce Coaching

    Coaching is available to all WBF students and alumni to support training retention and long term employment success.
  • Job Search Training and Job Retention Support

    Earned employment referrals, job search training and job retention support is available to all WBF students and alumni to assist with securing and retaining apprenticeships and employment.
