A $12.4-million investment from Alberta’s government will create almost 2,000 new apprenticeship seats across the province.

Alberta’s economy has momentum, and more skilled labourers are needed to support the province’s workforce, especially in the construction industry. To meet growing demand for highly skilled tradespeople across sectors, and in response to feedback from post-secondaries and industry, Alberta’s government is increasing capacity for skilled trades training.

This funding is in addition to the $15 million over three years announced earlier this year, which added more than 1,000 additional apprenticeship spaces, bringing the total funding for apprenticeship training in 2023-24 to $54.4 million.

By expanding apprenticeship opportunities, Alberta’s government is empowering students to pursue rewarding careers while sustaining the growth and momentum of Alberta’s skilled trades labour market.
