THE IBEW 353 IS PROUD TO OFFER A 25 WEEK PROGRAM OF MENTOR SUPPORTED ELECTRICAL TRADE TRAINING AND JOB PLACEMENT FOR WOMEN.
WOMEN IN THE IBEW 353
Now is the perfect time to join the increasing number of women thriving in the IBEW 353 electrical trade.
Ontario is experiencing a growing skills trades labour shortage. Employers are no longer hiring only the men who have traditionally worked in the skilled trades, but are now seeking to employ persons from a broad diversity of backgrounds.
There have always been women who have broken through the barriers and stereotypes to thrive in the skilled trades. But now is an exciting time for more women to consider a career as a skilled trades electrician with the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 353 (IBEW 353). This is a career which can provide competitively leading wages and benefits, a supportive union community, while still having time left in the week for family and personal life.
This Employment Ontario program is funded by the Government of Ontario.
Additional funding provided by the IBEW 353 and their community partners.

”When you have a job as an electrician, you can earn over $50 an hour, with the opportunity to work anywhere in our province and even start your own business,” said Monte McNaughton, Minister of Labour, Training and Skills Development. “Our government is proud to support this IBEW program, which will get more people into these live-changing careers.”
