Funding Cut for Canadian Apprenticeship Forum


The Canadian Apprenticeship Forum (CAF) is a pan-Canadian body that brings together government, employer and labour representatives of trades across Canada. This year the federal government de-funded the organization, along with other sector councils. In order to maintain a pan-Canadian body, a proposal has been developed to fundraise $850,000 by April 2013 to maintain the organization, but with a more streamlined governing body that would include representation from the construction and industrial sectors.

At the June CAF conference, a fundraising initiative was launched asking “Stakeholders” such as labour, employers and provincial governments to review this fundraising initiative and determine whether there is an appetite to continue. The fundraising initiative will be assessed in November 2012.
