Amy Ovans, 24, works as a welder at Rawtek Performance Fabrication, a company specializing in high-performance exhaust kits, located in Chute-à-Blondeau, near the border between Québec and Ontario.
Since 2020, she has also been teaching welding in the evening at the Nova Career Centre in Châteauguay, the same vocational training centre where she learned her trade. For her, being successful in a traditionally male-dominated trade is a matter of tenacity, willingness…and not being afraid to get your hands dirty!
