About the OBCT


Established by the Provincial Building and Construction Trades Council of Ontario (PBCTCO), the Ontario Building and Construction Tradeswomen (OBCT) is a committee of tradeswomen working together to advocate for women and underrepresented gender identities in the trades to ensure they feel inspired, welcomed, motivated, challenged, and empowered.

Through resources, mentorship and support, OBCT is building awareness among women in Ontario that a career in trades is not only an option, but can also benefit women (financial independence, job stability, benefits, leadership opportunities, retiring with a pension, etc.), and retain the women who have already chosen a career in trades.

Join the OBCT

Join us for the monthly OBCTradeswomen Committee meeting on the 3rd Wednesday of every month. The meeting is open to all Ontario tradeswomen and potential tradeswomen. Meeting details can be found on our Events page.
