National Symposium: Preparing Youth for Careers in the Skilled Trades

CAF-FCA invites members of the apprenticeship community to participate in a two-day National Symposium, where we will discuss how to engage and prepare youth for jobs in the Skilled Trades at the Sheraton Ottawa Hotel, in Ottawa, ON. 

Join us to:

  • Gain insights from CAF-FCA stakeholder consultations and learn about the latest apprenticeship research findings from Statistics Canada 
  • Participate in break-out sessions on topics including pre-apprenticeship, women in trades, completion and apprentice mobility
  • Learn about effective career awareness communication techniques and identify best practices
  • Engage in discussion, explore partnerships and help develop key messages to engage youth 
  • Inform future CAF-FCA resources for youth, parents and educators that will get them excited about careers in the skilled trades

The agenda is available here.

Members of the Canadian Apprenticeship Forum are eligible for discounted registrations. Please reach out to Cecilia@caf-fca.org for your promo code, or for more information on becoming a member.
