The Canadian jurisdictions signed a new Apprentice Mobility Protocol, providing apprentices with a national certification to work across the country. The Protocol, which is expected to take effect in all jurisdictions in Jan. 2016, recognizes that:
- Work experience and technical training may occur in any jurisdiction
- Jurisdictions will facilitate mobile apprentices progressing through their apprenticeship programs
- The mutual recognition of apprenticeship training and pre-apprenticeship training between jurisdictions.
