“We want to speak to employers who have hired apprentices
initially trained elsewhere and apprentices who have moved to complete their
apprenticeship,” said the CAF-FCA in its newsletter. The organization is gathering information as part of its Labour Mobility of
Apprentices project.

“The project seeks to ensure employers who wish to hire and
apprentices who wish to move are fully informed of the requirements for
successful transition. The project will gather insights into the challenges
associated with hiring out-of-province apprentices and develop appropriate
resources to help apprentices and employers meet administrative requirements.”

The CAF-FCA is scheduling 20-minute interviews throughout December.
Participation is voluntary and anonymous and results will be summarized in a
final report.

Those wishing to share this information with networks
or participate in an interview their experience with labour mobility may
