Welcome to the Home of CCWESTT

As a national organization of groups, institutions and industries, the Canadian Coalition of Women in Engineering, Science, Trades and Technology (CCWESTT) is proud to promote girls and women studying and working in these fields.

It celebrates the contributions of women in all spheres of Engineering, Science, Trades and Technology, from education to retention and leadership.

CCWESTT endorses Bill C-243

"CCWESTT is endorsing Private Member Bill C-243 with the caveat that this should be the first step towards a more comprehensive system and national strategy to ensure that women who want to have a family and remain active in the workplace can do it in a safe manner and without discrimination (which is the second part of the bill)," Dr. Liette Vasseur, President of CCWESTT, stated.

"CCWESTT will remain available for further discussion on these issues, considering that maternity is one aspect among many barriers that women, especially in under-represented workforce, face on a daily basis."
