Minister of Labour Patty Hajdu has announced $3.14 million from Canada's Building Trades Unions (CBTU) for a new apprenticeship project called An Innovative Model to Enhance Entry, Advancement, and Employment Outcomes of Women Apprentices. Supporting CBTU's Women in Trades Program, the 42-month project offers career services, employment assistance and networking opportunities for up to 750 women apprentices, including approximately 100 Indigenous women. The program aims to help each participant complete their training and obtain Red Seal certification, which allows them to work anywhere in Canada. The project is funded under the Innovation in Apprenticeship Training stream of the Union Training and Innovation Program, which receives $25 million annually from the federal government to support union‑based apprenticeship training, innovation and partnerships.
