Women in Resource Development Corporation (WRDC)

WRDC is a provincial non-profit organization committed to increasing women's participation in trades and technology. With private and public funding, WRDC offers a variety of programs and services to address challenges surrounding the attraction, recruitment, retention, and advancement of women in these sectors. WRDC was formed in 1997, and created a charitable arm, the Educational Resource Centre (WRDC-ERC), in 2002, to provide hands-on career exploration opportunities for female youth.

Our key activities include:

• career exploration programs for girls and young women;

• career development and employment assistance services for women;

• recruitment and retention consultation and training for employers; and

• collaborating with key stakeholders such as training institutions, employers, labour unions, government departments, and community groups to identify solutions to issues commonly identified by women in trades and technology.
