Building & Construction Trades Showcase 2010, Markham Event Centre
Saturday, November 27, 2010, 10:00 am to 3:00 pm

We at Wo-Built are pleased to support this great opportunity for students to find out about the trades organized by the Workforce Planning Board of York Region & Bradford West Gwillimbury, a non-for-profit, community-based organization working to develop solutions to local labour market needs and issues.

We would like to encourage everyone interested in joining the trades to attend the showcase. Our advice: talk to as many exhibitors as possible to find out if the trades are for you. Wo-Built Inc has the mission to encourage more women to choose the building trades as a viable and enjoyable career. Through our anime WoBinna & Friends we would like to create interest in young women to consider the trades as a possibility.
