CWB Welding Foundation

The CWB Welding Foundation is a national not-for-profit registered charity, founded by the Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB) in 2013.  With the support of government, educators, industry, corporate partners, and community organizations, we address the needs of Canadian industry for skilled professionals in welding, fabrication and allied processes and technologies.

Through education-based programs and initiatives, we reduce barriers that affect key groups; elementary, secondary, and post-secondary students, educators, Indigenous Peoples, women, and the under-represented. We envision a future where all individuals can explore and the knowledge and awareness to choose a career that allows them to reach their full potential.

We focus on access to careers in trades and technology, utilizing welding as a gateway skill with many career pathways in high demand across North American industry sectors.

We envision a future where all individuals are encouraged and provided the support needed to reach their true career potential regardless of identity factors, social and financial status, and lived experiences, including gender, age, ethnicity, language, literacy, culture, income, and geographical location.
