2022 Cooper Equipment Rentals Bursary for Women in Construction

In 2022, Cooper Equipment Rentals proudly partnered with the Canadian Association of Women in Construction (CAWIC) to provide the first set of Cooper Equipment Rentals Bursaries for Women in Construction!


The Canadian Association of Women in Construction (CAWIC) is a not-for-profit organization focused on the success of women in the Canadian construction industry. Cooper Equipment Rentals is a proud sponsor of CAWIC and supports their ongoing initiatives, including The Shoebox Project which provides essentials care packages to women impacted by homelessness in Canada. 

To align with Cooper’s commitment to attract, retain, train and sponsor women in our industry, we are proud to have partnered with the CAWIC to offer the Cooper Equipment Rentals Bursary for Women in Construction. 

In 2022, Cooper and CAWIC officially partnered to create this new annual bursary program available to Canadian women seeking further education or job skills training in construction fields.
