Employers are a crucial part of the apprenticeship system in Ontario. The role of the employer is to train apprentices in their trade. Employing apprentices has many benefits, including an excellent opportunity to recruit and retain enthusiastic and talented employees.

With the shortage in skilled trades, more people are trained in the skilled trades to keep the construction industry moving forward. Gain what you train when you hire an apprentice. Apprenticeships are a great way to recruit and retain enthusiastic and talented employees.
