BC invests $5M to support people entering, completing apprenticeships in skilled trades


The Government of British Columbia recently announced a $5M investment into supporting incoming professionals in the skilled trades. The investment will help to remove barriers to trades and apprenticeships for women, Indigenous peoples, and other under-represented groups. “This funding is about making sure that B.C. is training and supporting the next generation of apprentices and journey people,” said BC Minister of State for Workforce Development Andrew Mercier.
