Creation of a College of Trades, Report of the Advisor to the Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities

To The Honourable John Milloy
Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities

This report sets out a number of recommendations to support the creation of a College of Trades which, if adopted by the government will, in my view, contribute to the modernization of the apprenticeship and certification system in Ontario to make it more responsive to economic needs while enhancing the status and effectiveness of apprenticeship trades in the province.

Are You Interested in Being Profiled on the Canadian Apprenticeship Forum (CAF) Website?

The CAF is looking for apprentices who have been successful in
finding an employer sponsor.
We want to hear about:
- What influenced you to apprentice in your trade?
- How you went about finding an employer?
- What challenges you faced?
- How you addressed those challenges?
- What advice would you give young people on how to find an
employer sponsor?
We are looking for people from across Canada in any of the Red
Seal trades. We also want the profiles to cover the full range of
diversity including women, visible minorities, Aboriginal people
and people with disabilities. If selected for an interview, you will
receive a $50 honorarium. click here for more details
