Women in Construction Site Tour

The Women in Construction (WIC) Committee held its first School Site Tour at CANA’s National Music Centre (NMC) site on May 7. 

The Site Tour, which had nine high school girls and two school representatives from James Fowler High School, was a pilot program which WIC hopes will expand to other schools. The program commenced at 9:45 A.M. with a safety briefing by Cheyenne Bathy, a CANA Safety Officer, who had the girls dress in full Personal Protective Equipment. High visibility vests and safety glasses were provided by CANA, and hard hats and work boots were graciously donated by Flynn Canada. 

Two female tradespeople also joined the event to interact with the girls and showed them that women were welcome members in the world of the construction trades. Then Construction Manager Steven Ardell gave a project overview, followed by a one hour tour of the innovative site. 

After the tour, the group visited the Calgary Construction Centre to have an interactive lunch with the WIC committee members, where the students had an opportunity to share their dreams about their careers in the construction industry, and listened to the WIC committee members’ personal experiences and thoughts on their careers in construction.

The feedback from the young ladies on the site visit was very positive. The CCA and the WIC committee would like to give special thanks to the CANA team who graciously made this site tour possible as well as to all who helped make this event successful!
