Women Building Futures is a non-profit organization based in Edmonton, Alberta. Our mission is to empower women’s economic prosperity by removing barriers and providing industry recognized training in the construction trades, maintenance, transportation industries and more.
Our organization was founded in 1998 by a group of social workers with the shared dream of helping women achieve economic prosperity through trades training and mentorship.
We primarily work with women who are underemployed or unemployed and focus on removing common barriers to financial independence. These barriers include access to affordable housing, academic readiness, access to affordable childcare and more. Over the last 20 years, we’ve grown to become a trusted name in our focus industries for introductory training and inspiring more women to explore career opportunities in these areas.
