Provincial and Territorial Apprenticeship Mobility
Through the Council of the Federation, Premiers recognized the need to address apprentice mobility barriers and on July 16, 2015 signed the Provincial-Territorial Apprentice Mobility Protocol. The Protocol is a framework that enables apprentices to pursue jobs anywhere in Canada, facilitating their ability to move without interruption to their continuum of training.
The Provincial-Territorial Apprentice Mobility Protocol and Agreement facilitated the mutual recognition of off-the-job or technical training, work experience and examination results (to the extent practicable) for apprentices moving provinces and territorial across Canada on January 1, 2016.
For more information, refer to the Provincial-Territorial Apprentice Mobility Guidelines (PDF), or for detailed Mobility processes for each province or territory, refer to the Provincial-Territorial Apprentice Mobility Transfer Guide (PDF).
