Keyano College and Women Building Futures provide skills training for women in Wood Buffalo

“This excellent initiative not only allows women to live, train, and work in the region but also provides them with the skills they need to excel in a new career.



Keyano College and Women Building Futures have partnered for 2020-2021 to bring more skills training to women in Wood Buffalo.

Two new programs will be offered at Keyano College’s Suncor Energy Industrial Campus: Driver & Operator Training, which prepares students to obtain a Class 3 license and operate equipment such as hydrovacs & snow ploughs; and the Journeywoman Start program, which provides introductory training to various construction trades.

Both programs include classroom and hands-on learning that provide students with the skills required by industry employers in the region and improve their employability potential.

Women can apply to either program and find more information at
