Apprenticeship is a post-secondary pathway consisting of on-the-job training with a qualified tradesperson and technical training delivered in the classroom. With the rising need for tradespeople in Northern Ontario, there are many opportunities to pursue a career in the trades. Although attitudes are changing in relation to the trades being a viable career option, there is a lack of active promotion of the trades for young people and among parents, educators and peers. Encouraging parents and educators to become advocates for the trades offers an opportunity to enhance labour market efficiency in the region. In response to this challenge, the LEPC is conducting a marketing campaign to promote parental awareness and comfort with the trades and apprenticeships as a viable career and post-secondary education option for young people.
