Research & Surveys

The Ontario Building and Construction Tradeswomen are committed to conducting and sharing research related to women in the skilled trades. Findings from our surveys will contribute to a research report that will be distributed to employment and industry partners across Ontario. We want to learn about the experiences of women to improve practices and working conditions on all job sites. OBCT wants to understand why women leave the building and construction trades industry so we can prevent this from happening in the future.
