Alberta appoints skilled trades youth advisory council

EDMONTON – Alberta Minister of Advanced Education Rajan Sawney has appointed an Advisory Council of Skilled Trades Youth Ambassadors to amplify young voices in the industry and support efforts to encourage students to join the skilled trades.

Twelve youth ambassadors have been nominated by their post-secondary institution based on performance excellence on their apprenticeship path, a release said, and will advise the province on issues, challenges and opportunities affecting the skilled trades with each ambassador serving a term of six months.

“Alberta’s young adults have so much to offer our growing province. The advice of young apprentices and journeypersons will give us valuable insight as we look for more ways to grow and promote the skilled trades. I look forward to this exciting opportunity to collaborate with a strong group of ambassadors,” Sawney said.

“Skills Canada Alberta is proud to have members of our exceptional alumni serving on the Advisory Council of Skilled Trades Youth Ambassadors Group. As champions and leaders among their peers, they will be able to offer unique insights, raise the parity of esteem, and inspire Alberta’s future workforce to pursue rewarding careers in the trades,” added Skills Canada Alberta secretary and Finning technical training manager Patricia Nelson.
