The Centre de formation professionnelle Gabriel-Rousseau is actively involved in motivating women students to succeed and persevere in programs, traditionally filled by men, that lead to a construction trade or occupation. Its many initiatives support women in their training program and encourage them to graduate. The centre made its mark this year with its Espace de parole project, which aims to promote inspiring models of women students and workers and offers women students tools, networking opportunities, and mentorships with women construction workers. 

A winning partnership

The CCQ is particularly proud of its ongoing relationship with the Ministère de l’Éducation et de l’Enseignement supérieur as part of the Hats off to you! competition, which shines the spotlight on female role models and institutions with a positive influence on women in the construction industry.

The CCQ wishes to congratulate the three winners as well as the female students and educational institutions who applied. Thank you for your exemplary dedicationyou are great role models and sources of inspiration!
