Shortages in the skilled trades are already having an impact on Canadian employers, issuing an early warning for the demographic crunch expected in the next decade.
Construction, mining, energy, manufacturing and service sectors all report real and anticipated shortages that will pose a pan-Canadian challenge to the country's economy.

Addressing the challenge requires both awareness and commitment from stakeholders across Canada, including business, labour, educators and various levels of government. Apprenticeship contributes to solving skills shortages and provides opportunities for knowledge transfer from one generation to the next, while also engaging young people at a time when youth unemployment rates remain high.

In preparation for its June 2012 conference, the Canadian Apprenticeship Forum has released a program focused on Apprenticeship: Strategies for Success. Showcasing the best in apprenticeship training and practices in Canada, the conference is a breeding ground for new ideas, solutions and partnerships. The event will serve as a meeting place for apprenticeship stakeholders concerned about labour shortages.

The CAF-FCA 2012 Conference is a biennial event that is held in various locations across Canada. This year, the event will be held from June 3-5 in Regina, Sask. Presentations will focus on innovation, diversity and engagement.
