MWT Building Our Future Conference

The Manitoba Construction Sector Council (MCSC) is a not for profit organization that supports new entrants and existing workers in construction with a focus on addressing the needs of underrepresented groups including Indigenous people, youth at risk, women, and immigrants.  With this in mind, MCSC and our construction association partners including Manitoba Home Builder’s Association, Manitoba Heavy Construction Association, Manitoba Building Trades, and Winnipeg Construction Association are hosting a Manitoba Women in Trades Conference on February 18-19th, 2020 (7:30 AM– 4:00 PM) at Victoria Inn. This event is geared to women who need support, guidance, and connections to make their construction career a success.
