Building Futures in the Trades

Watch how MCSC’s EmpowHER Program connects women with careers in the trades

MCSC’s EmpowHER program has been a “life-changing experience” for many of the women who have participated in learning new construction, manufacturing, and filmmaking skills...
Over the past year, MCSC has teamed up with Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters, and Film Training Manitoba to offer the course to a few cohorts, which allowed participants to branch off into one of three trades areas for their hands-on practicum work.

Who We Work With

Industry Partners

MCSC partners with construction companies to identify and address skill gaps and labour shortages. When skill gaps are identified, MCSC will work with educational institutions across Canada to research current training that avoids duplication of services. If skill gaps are not being addressed in Manitoba, MCSC will develop and deliver a micro-credential that provides a clear career path to lifelong learning apprenticeship.

Educational Institutions

MCSC has partnered with educational institutions to establish a mutually beneficial relationship with the construction industry and students seeking careers in the sector. The partners work together to recognize prior learning, develop new courses, and create a road map for youth and adults returning to school. Learners navigate the system and open all doors for learning.


Grateful for their support, MCSC receives their core funding from the Province of Manitoba. Additional special project funding is obtained from the Government of Canada, the construction industry, Indigenous communities and partners.

Community Members

MCSC has collaborated on industry-driven training projects in dozens of Indigenous communities across the province. MCSC’s Indigenous Liaison is from northern Manitoba and has four decades of construction management experience. His work in the sector and the relationships he has built with chiefs and councils is instrumental to the success of MCSC community programs.

Programming Just For You

MCSC supports underrepresented groups across Manitoba including women, youth, newcomers and Indigenous people who are seeking a career pathway in the construction sector.
