Apprentices in British Columbia and New Brunswick will now be able to seamlessly work in either province, thanks to a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed by Premiers Christy Clark and David Alward at the Council of the Federation meeting in Charlottetown.
Starting this fall, apprentices in British Columbia and New Brunswick will be able to seamlessly work in either province to achieve their Red Seal certificate, and move freely between the two provinces to take advantage of job opportunities.
The MOU is meant to address immediate and future demand for skilled labour in both B.C. and N.B., and ideally contribute to the development of a national apprenticeship mobility strategy.
