Happy International Women’s Day 2023

Happy International Women’s Day 2023


Today we celebrate International Women’s Day. This day is meant to commemorate and honour the wins and achievements of women while also raising awareness around gender equality.

At Farmer Construction, we encourage and support women to rise to their full potential without being judged or scrutinized. We recently celebrated the success of two of our women carpenters, Chantal and Nitasha, who participated and were very successful in the Provincial Carpentry Apprenticeship Competition placing in first and fourth place. (See website under ‘News‘ for details).

We look forward to celebrating the successes of all the Farmer women as well as the rest of Team Farmer in achieving their goals. By supporting and encouraging one another, we can raise one another up, work together as a team, achieve our goals and build the communities that we work and live in.


“Success is not final; failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.”
~ Winston S. Churchill

Employee Appreciation Day!

Today is Employee Appreciation Day, and I want to take a moment to recognize and celebrate each and every one of you. Your hard work, dedication, and commitment to excellence are what make Team Farmer so successful.

I appreciate your willingness to go above and beyond to help your colleagues and community. Your positive attitude and Team Farmer Spirit are an inspiration to us all.  I am grateful for the unique skills and perspectives that each of you brings to the table, and I know that together, we can achieve great things.

So, on this special day, I want to say “THANK YOU”. Thank you for your hard work, your dedication, and your unwavering commitment to making Team Farmer the best it can be. I am proud and thankful to have you on our team and look forward to many more years of success together.

Happy Employee Appreciation Day!

Congratulations Chantal Walter!

Farmer Construction is excited to announce that our very own Chantal Walter was the 1st place winner in the Provincial Carpentry Apprenticeship Competition that took place on February 24, 2023.  This event is organized by Local Carpenters Union 1598 and held at Camosun College Interurban.  Chantal will go on to represent BC at the UBC Canadian National Apprenticeship Competition in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, June 8—10, 2023.

We would also like to congratulate Nitasha Wodham of Farmer Construction who came in very close at 4th place.  Chantal and Nitasha were 2 out of the first 3 females to enter the competition with Chantal being the first woman to win since the origin of the event in 1963.  The concept of the competition is that each trade must complete a written exam and a practical test which included building a small concrete wall, frame a wall section with a window and rafters, stairs, install baseboard and window casing.

We are proud to have such talented carpenters on Team Farmer and we hope this inspires other Women in Construction to showcase their talent in future competitions.

Way to go Chantal and good luck at the Nationals in June!

Winners:  1. Chantal Walter  2. Carmen Petri  3. Matthew Folliott

Supporting our communities

At Farmer Construction, our goal is to support the communities that we build and live in by helping those less fortunate than ourselves. Once again, thanks to the generosity of our Farmer team, we collected donations for local charities.
A big shout out to our Farmer team for their contributions in helping to support The Mustard Seed Food Bank and CFAX Santas Anonymous who play an important role in building and supporting our communities. We look forward to continuing to support these worthy organizations in the new year!
