Apprentices have more options than ever before!

Provincial-Territorial Apprentice Mobility Protocol

The Provincial-Territorial Apprentice Mobility Protocol, an exciting Agreement on apprenticeship training, increases your choices, as an Alberta-registered apprentice, of training in other Canadian provinces and territories.

Trade Harmonization: Does it affect your apprenticeship program?

In 2013, at the request of industry, the Harmonization Initiative was launched to align Canadian apprenticeship systems by increasing the consistency in the training requirements in the Red Seal trades. Harmonization is geared to improving the mobility of apprentices, supporting an increase in completion rates and enabling employers to access a greater pool of apprentices.

As a part of this work, the Canadian Council of the Directors of Apprenticeship (CCDA) has identified four main harmonization priorities, in consultation with industry and training stakeholders. More detailed information is available on the Red Seal website.
