We are now the BC Trades Equity Society

At the AGM last month, it was voted to change our name from the BC Tradeswomen Society to the BC Trades Equity Society to be more inclusive to our non binary and trans men members that may have felt excluded.

We updated our Constitution to reflect the change as well.


Constitution of the BC Trades Equity Society

The name of the Society is “BC Trades Equity Society”

The purposes of the society are:

  1. To provide a positive environment of support and encouragement
    for women, trans men, trans women, and non-binary individuals in the
    trades.
  2. To promote success for women, trans men, trans women, and
    non-binary individuals in the trades through education, leadership, and
    mentoring.
  3. To decrease the barriers that prohibit women, trans men, trans
    women, and non-binary individuals from remaining in the trades.
  4. To increase the employment and retention rates of women, trans
    men, trans women, and non-binary individuals in the trades.

As our communities grow and change, we will strive to be inclusive over exclusive and to continue working towards more equitable and professional work environments for all equity deserving groups in BC.

Thank you to all our members, organizations and allies that work together with us towards a future that is barrier free.


Congratulations to the new members of the Executive Board of Directors Anne Lee and Carissa Belyk.

We’re all looking forward to seeing what great ideas the new board members bring to the table and all the exciting things to come this year!
