Saskatchewan puts $1 million towards 150 additional apprenticeship training seats

REGINA – The Government of Saskatchewan is investing an additional $1 million to increase skilled trades capacity in the province.

The additional funding brings total investment into the Saskatchewan Apprenticeship and Trade Certification Commission (SATCC) to $22.4 million in 2023-24, which supports apprenticeship training in trades such as construction electricians, plumbers and sheet metal workers, a release said.

“As Saskatchewan’s economy continues to grow, we are seeing a significant number of capital projects underway or planned throughout the next several years, all of which will create more demand for skilled tradespeople in the province. Additional funding will create more capacity in our training system, supporting the Saskatchewan Labour Market Strategy and ensuring Saskatchewan people benefit from the opportunities our economy is creating,”  said Immigration and Career Training Minister Jeremy Harrison in the release.

Since 2007, provincial funding for apprenticeship has increased more than 71 per cent and the additional funding will add 150 training seats to SATCC’s programming, the release said.

“We are thrilled the Government of Saskatchewan is providing this additional investment in support of our province’s apprenticeship and trade certification system. This funding will help us meet the growing demand for apprenticeship training,” SATCC CEO Jeff Ritter added.
