Overcoming Canada's skilled tradesperson shortage
from The Gazette
When it comes to the question of whether Canada is developing enough skilled tradespeople, the perspectives are more diverse than one might imagine. In conversations across the country, I hear a variety of explanations for why there are not enough. Employers aren't doing their part by hiring apprentices. Labour agreements are prohibitive. It's hard to free up time away from the job site for technical training.
