Fifteen female students received scholarships for the 2016-17 academic year. In addition to assisting current students with this funding, it is hoped that these scholarships will help to raise the profile of the trades as a viable career choice for women.

“It’s important for women to see skilled trades as a viable career option,” said Unifor National President Jerry Dias. “Statistics show that typically less than 3% of all apprentices in the construction, automotive and industry trades are female. Unifor is committed to changing the perception of who a skilled tradesperson is, to one based on competency and not gender.”

“As we continue to grow our business, it is vitally important that we have a wide pool of skilled talent to bring into our organization,” said Bill Schultz, President, Coca-Cola Refreshments Canada. “These scholarships are not only a way to give back to a community that has been an extremely important partner, but also an investment to help create a bright future for a community where our employees, customers and consumers live and work.”
