Women In Uniform (Algonquin College)

Women in Uniform is an annual event held at Algonquin College in Ottawa to showcase Emergency Service careers and the College's Police and Public Safety Program to young women in grades 10 and 11. This event is supported by the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Training, College and Universities, School/College/Work Initiative (www.scwi.ca).

 

Young women with an interest in Paramedecine, Firefighting, Policing and Bylaw are provided with an opportunity to explore these careers. They are invited to participate in classroom workshops and are given the opportunity to speak with instructors and students at the college as well as women currently in Emergency Service careers. Ottawa's Firefighters, Paramedics and Police have demonstrations and equipment on hand for the girls, and the day is capped off with an extrication scenario.

 

Women in Uniform has had three successful years, with 75 to 100 students and teachers in attendance each year and more to come.
