Youth Advisors (Mltsd) Want To Hear Form You!
Youth Advisors (MLTSD) Want to hear form YOU!
The apprenticeship and skilled trades in Ontario SURVEY is available on-line until February 26, 2021 and should take approximately 20 minutes to complete.
We would like to thank all the stakeholders who have already taken the time to share thoughts and ideas on how to engage more young people into apprenticeship and the skilled trades.
We want to continue to hear from educators, students, apprentices, journeypersons, parents, employers and others about their opinions and experiences on how we can better encourage and prepare more young people to pursue a career in the skilled trades. We look forward to more conversations in the coming months with those we have yet to connect with.
To help ensure that we reach as many people as possible, we encourage you to widely promote this survey throughout your network including social media channels.
Thank you again for your ongoing commitment to supporting apprentices and the skilled trades in Ontario.

When I Grow Up...
"Ontario's demand for workers in the trades is on the rise, and we want to attract more young and talented people into the exciting and challenging world of trades," "Becoming an ironworker or a sprinkler fitter should be as obvious as becoming a firefighter or a lawyer” said Minister McNaughton.

A Community Action Strategy
The National Strategy to Support Women in the Trades was developed by employers, labour representatives, educators and equity representatives from multiple trades and regions to create sustainable and measurable change for women. This effort is being led by the Canadian Apprenticeship Forum (CAF-FCA), a national, non-profit organization.
The Strategy includes the following goals:
- Increase the number of women apprentices, journeypersons and supervisors where they are underrepresented in proportion to the total number in a skilled trades workplace.
- Create respectful and welcoming workplaces through meaningful policy and education. Workplaces should be safe, healthy, inclusive and equitable, free of harassment, bullying, and discrimination.
