Local Apprenticeship Committees


Welcome to the ‘grassroots’ of the apprenticeship and industry training system for designated trades. Employers and employees are equally represented, with members appointed by the Alberta Apprenticeship and Industry Training Board for terms of up to three years.

Committee members are responsible for:

  • monitoring local activities and updating their trade’s Provincial Apprenticeship Committee (PAC) with local information,
  • monitoring the apprenticeship system and the progress of apprentices in their trade at the local (regional) level,
  • making recommendations to their trade’s PAC regarding apprenticeship training and certification, making recommendations to the Board regarding appointment of members to their trade’s PAC, and helping to settle disputes between apprentices and their employers in matters relating to the Apprenticeship and Industry Training Act.
