Harmonization Update
In 2013, the Canadian Council of the Directors of Apprenticeship (CCDA) launched its Harmonization Initiative. This initiative aims to substantively align apprenticeship systems across Canada by making training requirements more consistent in the Red Seal trades. Through national consultation with industry and training stakeholders, the initiative seeks consensus for consistency on the Canada-wide use of Red Seal trade names, numbers of levels, and total training hours (both technical training and on-the-job). Finally, using the most recent National Occupational Analyses (NOA’s) or Red Seal Occupational Standards (RSOS’s), industry and training stakeholders provide feedback on the development of a more consistent sequence of training content across the levels of technical training. Harmonization will support mobility of apprentices, an increase in their completion rates and enable employers to access a larger pool of apprentices.
Having completed much of the work for Phase 1, which involved 10 trades, the CCDA most recently launched Phase 2 of the initiative with the next eight trades (see Red Seal website for the list of these trades). Manitoba and local stakeholders have participated in the national consultations for all trades that are designated in the Province.
