With more and more women seizing opportunities within construction and the trades, the Canadian Association of Women in Construction ( #CAWIC ) is committed to increasing #women 's representation in #construction .
Women working in the construction field are still the anomaly rather than the norm; however, as someone who has experience in the field I can assure you that things are changing.

In 2016, let's make women visible, starting with the money. 
Historian Merna Forster is right on the money when she says we can all play a role in celebrating and raising the awareness of Canadian women, and on the money would be a great place to commemorate women in the year 2016.
