The Canadian Apprenticeship Forum (CAF-FCA) is making presentations in major Canadian cities on the demand for skilled tradespeople as well as mobility of apprentices. The main event will be held in Ottawa as a two-day symposium on October 22 and 23, at the Delta Ottawa City Centre. It will also be hosting one-day sessions throughout the fall, on Tackling Skills Shortages in Canada: An Apprenticeship Focused Approach, with an emphasis on the Day 2 symposium agenda. These will in Halifax (November 3); Calgary (November 10); and Burnaby, BC (November 12). The Ottawa event will coincide with the CAF-FCA’s annual general meeting. The Forum’s nomination committee is calling for nominations from members to fill four board seats subject to election. These include Education, Employer, Jurisdiction and Labour. CAF-FCA has 15 directors on its board: four employers, four labour representatives, four jurisdictional apprenticeship authority representatives, two from educational institutions and one equity group representative. The Forum’s national apprenticeship conference will be held from June 5-7, 2016. The organisation is currently offering partnership opportunities for this, as well as issuing a call for presentations. caf-fca.org
