On July 16, 2015, Canada’s Premiers signed the Provincial-Territorial Apprentice Mobility Protocol (PDF, 47 KB), establishing a framework to facilitate apprentices mobility to pursue jobs anywhere in Canada without interruption to their continuum of training.
Ministers responsible for apprenticeship also signed a Provincial-Territorial Mobility Agreement which details jurisdictional commitments to facilitate apprentices being able to work temporarily or move permanently between provinces and territories and receive recognition for hours worked and other training completed.
The documents together create the foundation that enables apprentices to pursue training anywhere in Canada.
The Premiers’ Protocol and the Ministers’ Agreement apply to apprentices that wish to move:
