PEI launches program to encourage women to pursue trades training

January 20, 2010

The Prince Edward Island government is funding a program called Trade HERizons that is designed to encourage more female residents of the province to enter trades-training programs. Administered by Women's Network PEI, the program will provide training for 36 women over 3 years. Participants will complete a 14-week college-readiness program from February to May, and later enrol in a trades-training program of their choice in the fall. Trade HERizons will also help participants find work after their training is complete. PEI News Release
