The YWCA Hamilton Uplift Program provides women and non-binary people with the opportunity to reskill or upskill in the advanced manufacturing and specialized technology fields through certification training and additional supports related to navigating non-traditional workplaces and job development. All training expenses are covered by the program, and paid by YWCA Hamilton.

Participants in the Advanced Manufacturing stream complete a set of three micro-credentials through McMaster Manufacturing Research Institute (MMRI), and a leadership communication course through Brescia University College. During and after certification, YWCA Hamilton provides ongoing wraparound services to support participants, including mentorship.

Some of the learning opportunities for participants involve predictive maintenance, continuous improvement or specialized problem-solving, such as microscopy-failure analysis, Tribology (the science of wear, friction and lubrication), or Finite Element modeling, Lean analysis, SQL data models, and Machining Learning algorithms.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Women (cisgender or transgender) or non-binary
  • Relevant Bachelor degree, diploma and/or industry experience
  • Canadian citizen or permanent resident
  • Canadian Language Benchmark levels 7-8
