Canada: Paid pre-apprenticeship program recruiting women only for the trades

Article here. Excerpt:

'Women interested in careers like plumbing, electrical, and carpentry will get the chance to get paid while learning about the trades this fall, thanks to a new pre-apprenticeship program exclusively for women.

The paid program, called CRAFT Women (Creating Real Apprenticeships for Toronto) will offer 15 successful applicants four weeks of in-class training at the College of Carpenters and Allied Trades and then a 10-week job placement arranged by the Daniels Corporation or Heights Development.
The program will run from Aug. 27 to Nov. 30 and participants will earn $14/hr. According to Selva, most pre-apprenticeship programs do not pay wages.

Costs for childcare, travel, basic tools and safety equipment will be covered, along with mentorship through Sisters in Trades, an organization that supports women in construction.'

We all know young men have no expenses to deal with when going into trades. Not at all.
