Legislative changes introduced April 10 will increase employer involvement in apprenticeship and make it easier for apprentices to complete their training and get jobs in Nova Scotia.
Amendments to the Apprenticeship and Trades Qualifications Act and the Community Colleges Act, lay the groundwork to establish an industry-led apprenticeship agency and ensure apprentices are getting the training they need.
Minister of Labour and Advanced Education Kelly Regan says these changes will help to build on existing partnerships with industry, employers, apprentices, and trainers so Nova Scotia's workforce can take full advantage of opportunities. These changes are the result of a series of consultations over the last few years with apprentices, employers, industry members and trainers to identify ways to improve Nova Scotia's apprenticeship system.
