Ottawa – The Canadian Apprenticeship Forum (CAF-FCA) is conducting a national survey of certified journeypersons who completed apprenticeship training and may or may not currently work in the trades.

Shared views on career pathways in the skilled trades will shape future career awareness resources and educate youth and parents as they explore potential careers.

The survey will take about 10 minutes to complete and results are anonymous. All surveys must be completed by March 31, 2015.

If you are a certified journeyperson, go to to take the survey.


If you know a certified journeyperson who would be interested in participating, share the survey link with them. For more information, contact Emily Arrowsmith at

    If the Ontario government wants more skilled trade people, they should:
    1) Reduce the cost for G3, G2 and G1 gas licenses. The cost has tripled four times since the 1990s.
    2) Companies should be able to have more apprentices on staff. Do away with current ratios.
    3) Grandfather clauses need to come back. We have a lot of skilled people who have worked in the trades. With the colleges fining people for no license working in a business with licensed guys, its forcing people to look for other work.
    4) If you are a licensed skill trades, you should be granted a license in similar trades with a short course and exam.
