Student’s in the trades, this information will assist you in your employment quest as a first-year trade apprentice.
The biggest hurdle students have after choosing a career is finding employment. More specifically, with trades apprenticeship, finding a willing employer sponsor for their first year of apprenticeship is a challenge. Many employers are reluctant to hire apprentices due to costs which makes finding a willing employer a difficult and the slow one.
There is funding available to the employer if a student is hired. The Federal government funded program takes away many of employer excuses by providing financial incentives to offset the cost of training. Students aware of this program can not only sell themselves but show the enhanced return on the company’s investment.
This program is provided by the Canadian Institute of Steel Construction (CISC), funded by the Government of Canada, covering 22 federally recognized construction and manufacturing trades.
