Over $1 million to the Electrical Joint Training Committee for its The Quest for balance: A Digital Recruitment Campaign project!

The Electrical Joint Training Committee (EJTC) is an industry leading electrical trades training institute, located right here in Port Coquitlam!

Through this over $1-Million investment EJTC will work with Glacier Media Digital to develop marketing strategies to raise awareness of the skilled trades among women in British Columbia and motivate them to enrol in training programs. By obtaining more information on pathways and qualifications required for entry into electrical trades, participants will be able to make the right career choice. In addition, to ensure a wider reach, results of the project will be shared with electrical training partners across Canada and with construction trades partners in British Columbia.

This initiative aims to recruit over 50 female apprentices, with an overall goal of 20% female enrollment at EJTC by 2021!

I’ve been working with EJTC for several years, and this is a fantastic project that will have a positive, far reaching impact for years to come. Learn More: EJTC News Release
