IUPAT Canada recognizes the pressing need for female inclusion and recruitment into the building trades. Build Together: Women of the Building Trades focuses upon meeting those needs so we can continue to move our organization forward.
The Build Together Program was created by tradeswomen for the purpose of changing and advancing the culture of the construction industry. For too long, our industry has had unfortunate barriers such as gender discrimination, wage inequality and lack of awareness for opportunities and careers in the trades which further prevent and/or discourage women from joining the building trades. That is why the Build Together program has tailored strategies to actively recruit & retain women to the industry. Multiple chapters of Build Together: Women of the Building Trades have been established throughout Canada’s provinces to recruit more women into our industry. Each chapter takes an active role in organizing women in their communities, regularly holding local events for recruiting new workers and providing mentors for those workers
