Manitoba launches public engagement on apprenticeship improvements

WINNIPEG – The Government of Manitoba is inviting the public to participate in the development of the Apprenticeship and Certification Board’s (ACB) five-year strategic plan for the province’s apprenticeship and certification system and workforce development.

The Manitoba ACB is hosting a series of engagement opportunities to help inform and develop a strategic plan slated for completion in early 2023.

“Our government recognizes the importance of effective apprenticeship and certification processes, so we welcome public input on how we can best provide a system that ensures a smoother path to employment for individuals and a stronger workforce for all Manitobans. The anticipated insights will be invaluable as we continue to develop a five-year strategic plan for 2023 to 2028 on the key areas of training, employment and professional development,” said provincial Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Immigration Jon Reyes in a statement.

“The ACB provides leadership in the development and co-ordination of a relevant, accessible and responsive apprenticeship and certification system in Manitoba. We are listening to stakeholders and adapting to industry needs to deliver training that meets the evolving needs of employers and apprentices to ensure we attract and retain workers for the skilled trades in Manitoba,” ACB board chair Harvey Miller added. The board will hold five-in person public meetings and two virtual meetings and a survey will be available until Sept. 30.

Meetings will be held throughout September including:

  • Sept. 7 in Winnipeg from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Norwood Hotel, 112 Marion St.;
  • Sept. 8 in Brandon from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Victoria Inn Hotel & Convention Centre, 2550 Victoria Ave.;
  • Sept. 22 in Thompson from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Best Western Thompson Hotel & Suites, 205 Mystery Lake Rd;

  • Sept. 28 in Winkler from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Quality Inn & Suites, 851 Main St.
