Inclusive pre-apprenticeships pathways: environmental scan

In partnership with the Canadian Apprenticeship Forum we’ve completed the first step in our Inclusive Pre-Apprenticeship Pathways program that will help Canadians, particularly those facing barriers to education, access pre-apprenticeship training designed to support their success!

The environmental scan identifies three different types of pre-apprenticeship programs offered by colleges and institutes, with particular attention paid to programs designed for groups under-represented in trades, including Indigenous peoples, women, new Canadians, visible minorities, youth, and people with disabilities. Read the final report of the Environmental Scan and browse the Pre-Apprenticeship program inventory.

The Inclusive Pre-Apprenticeship Pathways project is funded by Employment and Social Development Canada as part of the Skilled Trades Awareness and Readiness program.
