  • B.C.'s training system model for Canada - ICBA - Independent Contractors and Businesses Association of British Columbia
    skilled workers In construction and other skilled trades nine out of 10 provinces have strict regulations on the number of apprentices a company can hire relative to the number of certified workers they already employ The C D Howe report offers a chilling glimpse at how these journeyperson apprentice ratios are reducing the number of skilled workers available It found that provinces with tight restrictions have 44 per cent fewer workers in those trades than provinces that have no restrictions In other words these ratios ratchet up skill shortages A great deal of handwringing happens coast to coast about getting young workers into the trades Governments make plans Governments spend money Governments offer grants But the fact of the matter is governments east of B C fail young workers because of the limits they place on apprenticeships As the C D Howe report highlights provinces with journeyperson apprentice ratios above 1 1 have 38 per cent fewer young workers Apprenticeship quotas are a thing of the past in B C and scrapping set ratios of certified workers to trainees is a move other provinces need to take if they want to erase shortages of skilled workers The findings in the report make it especially strange that labour left critics here in B C are calling for a massive overhaul of trades training because of the so called failure of the system The solution Moving to what other provinces are doing Compulsory trades more bureaucrats to oversee the systems and the ratios examined in the report Simply put the demands for change are wrong The training system changes that happened in B C since 2004 have been a wild success Last year the Industry Training Authority which oversees apprenticeship in B C issued 8 759 certificates of qualification That was the highest in history more than double the number of graduates under the old system One might suspect that the real force behind the push for change isn t to increase skills training it s actually about increasing the labour left s control of the system at the expense of training B C has the kind of open system the C D Howe report recommends Our province should be proud of how it has torn down the barriers that keep young workers in other provinces from getting into a career in the trades Our province can build on this and can show other provinces how to get more people trained today for the jobs of tomorrow B C is ahead of the pack and now it s our chance to help the rest of the country rebuild their training systems and get more people trained Post navigation Training Tuesday Successful Interviewing Workshop Plug into Hydro contract information Leave a Reply Cancel reply You must be logged in to post a comment Menu ICBA Independent News Media Publications Links Search for Recent Posts 3 Myths About Pipeline Projects In B C The Trans Mountain Expansion Project is a winning proposition for Canada
