The GNWT and Skills Canada NWT are partnering to present a Girls in Trades Workshop in September.

The event is designed to provide opportunities for female students wanting to explore trades as a potential career path.

“Participants will learn first-hand what a career in the trades could look like and gain valuable insights into these rewarding career options that provide excellent compensation while delivering quality services and contributions to our communities,” Education Minister R.J. Simpson stated.

The initiative is being directed towards female students ages 13 to 17 from Yellowknife, as well as Ndilǫ, Dettah and Behchokǫ̀.

A free workshop is scheduled for Sept. 25, at the Kimberlite Career and Technical Centre from 9:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Registration is now open.

  1. I hope these trades include fashion technology. Our daughter represented the NWT in Skills Canada this year, but didn’t have a teacher/mentor to guide her through it. We have talented kids in the north and need volunteers to mentor them in all communities. I can’t wait to see what happens next for SkillsNWT
