What Do Our Partners Say?


Saddle Lake Cree Nation

“Women Building Futures has been out to Saddle Lake Cree Nation to shed some light on the programs for the women of our Nation. The Indigenous Engagement Team has helped our women in Saddle Lake understand that a career in trades is easier than they thought. With them coming into the Nation, the application process has been easier and not so overwhelming.”

“Women Building Futures were very helpful with our community, through hands-on meetings and providing lots of support in our community in engaging the women.”

“I’ve witnessed the increase in women from our Nation working in industry. While some have stayed and worked in the community, some have moved on as they liked the challenge of working in the industry area.”

Kinder Morgan Canada Trans Mountain Expansion Project

“Pipeline construction, facility construction, and mid-stream — WBF's formula is bang on and the opportunity exists for WBF to do more of what they’re already doing.” 

“WBF invests time and energy in the front end, the screening, the identification and the pre-program training such as the Career Builder sessions. They’re not looking at putting bums in seats, but rather to provide training to the right candidates for companies to consider hiring.”
