The Canadian Apprenticeship Forum is seeking apprentices

To Whom It May Concern:

The Canadian Apprenticeship Forum is seeking apprentices who would be willing to be profiled on their website in order to encourage young people to become apprentices and to provide them with information on ways in which to find an employer/sponsor.

We will be profiling 15 – 20 apprentices, so it is possible that not all those who respond will be posted on the website.

Attached is an invitation to participate. We would appreciate it if you could pass it on to apprentices who you feel might be interested. As well if you could post it on the bulletin board of your local’s office and/or training centre that would be very much appreciated.

Thank you for your help with this. If you have any questions, please call Paul Bakker, 1-866-469-9954 x226.

Best Regards,

Jennifer Logan

Are You Interested in Being Profiled on the Canadian Apprenticeship Forum Website

The Canadian Apprenticeship Forum is looking for apprentices who have been successful in finding an employer sponsor.

We want to hear about:

§ What influenced you to apprentice in your trade?

§ How did you go about finding an employer?

§ What challenges did you face?

§ How did you address those challenges?

§ What advice would you give young people on how to find an employer sponsor?

We are looking for people from across Canada in any of the Red Seal trades. We also want the profiles to cover the full range of diversity including women, visible minorities, Aboriginal people and people with disabilities.

If you are willing to tell you story and have it profiled on the CAF-FCA website along with sending us a photo of you, please call or email Paul Bakker:
