Strike is helping create equal opportunities for women and creating an atmosphere of respect and acceptance. We aim to make a meaningful impact in our industry by encouraging women to pursue careers in the trades and construction, and by actively creating opportunities for education, apprenticeships, and hiring. Increasing participation of women in the trades and onsite management helps to replenish Canada’s skilled construction workforce.
If you identify as Female and are pursuing an education in the trades or post-secondary, we encourage you to apply!
