$1 million in funding announced to support apprenticeship in high demand trades
Apprentices, employers, and anyone considering a career in trades should take note: LNG Canada has announced $1 million in private funding to support employers sponsoring apprentices and foundation (pre-apprentice) trades students in programs from Carpentry to Welding.
The LNG Canada Trades Training Fund, which is administered by the BC Construction Association, will support training in all construction trades, although priority may be given to 15 high demand trades in B.C. identified by LNG Canada. Ten of these trades are currently offered at Okanagan College, B.C.’s second largest trades training institution.
