Jill of All Trades

Jill of All Trades (JOAT) was launched by Conestoga College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning in 2014 to introduce young women in grades 9 through 12 to the possibilities of a career in the skilled trades.

Located in southwestern Ontario, Conestoga is a provincial leader in the delivery of trades and apprenticeship training to serve industry needs and growing communities. Through gender-specific programming and mentoring opportunities like Jill of All Trades, the college assists and encourages women to pursue careers in under-represented and non-traditional occupations.

As part of its growth and expansion over the last decade, Jill of All Trades programming is now available for delivery in other communities. By 2026, Jill of All Trades plans to expand to 25 institutions across Canada and 20 across the U.S., delivering more than 120 events.

I will forever remember the Jill of All Trades event as the first place I changed a tire, and the first place someone encouraged me to do so. That for me, sums up the whole atmosphere of the event.
