The ÉMCM aims to facilitate the training of women in the construction trades. Visits are regularly organized for young women interested in one or more of the vocations taught at the school and who wish to know more about women’s participation in the industry.
Every year, the school encourages female students to participate in the contest Hats Off to You! In 1995, only 3 women were registered at the ÉMCM. In 2008-2009, there were 186 women. Between 1997 and 2008, the number of women in the construction industry has increased significantly. In 2008, women represented 1.2% of the total labor force, a proportion that is four times superior than it was 11 years ago.
