BC invests $5M into expanded seats, support for apprenticeships in the trades

The Government of British Columbia has provided $5M to the Industry Training Authority (ITA) to support apprentices who are pursuing training and certification in the mechanical, electrical, or automotive trades. The funds will be used to increase the number of seats and expand the supports available to students. “We’re delighted to work with government and training providers to facilitate funding that will directly increase training program seats and supports, which will allow more people to enter trades training and achieve certification,” said ITA CEO Shelley Gray. “We remain committed to ensuring apprentices [and] tradespeople … have the opportunity to access training and support they need to succeed in their career.” BC Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
