July 17: Jurisdictions Agree on New Apprentice Mobility Protocol


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.
