Try the Trades with Manitoba Building Trades Institute & MWC

November 26, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm


In partnership with the Manitoba Building Trades Institute, MWC presents Try the Trades day – a day geared towards girls in Grades 9-12!

Join us for a full day of hands-on and virtual activities simulating over 30 skilled trades careers. The morning will feature a safety orientation and tour of the warehouse where students will learn about fall arrest and confined space entry. After lunch, students will be able to try their skills at 12 stations including a backhoe simulator and get their hands dirty making a brick archway!

If you, or someone you know are considering a career in construction, this day is for you!
