In order to fulfill BC’s potential for prosperity and ensure British Columbians are first in line for well-paid jobs, the Province needs to tap into the full range of BC’s potential workforce.
Under the BC Jobs Plan, government is investing more than $4 million in 2013-14 through the Canada-British Columbia Labour Market Agreement to enable 675 women to access mentorship opportunities and trades training programs, complete skills upgrading, and receive financial support for childcare, transportation, tools and equipment.
Investing in secondary and post-secondary trades training is a priority of the BC Jobs Plan. This is helping women – and British Columbians generally – get the right training, in the right place, at the right time, to meet the many opportunities coming to British Columbians.
There has truly never been a more exciting time for women to pursue a career in trades. For more information on government’s commitment to skills training, visit: www.bcjobsplan.ca
