North Coast Business owners to learn more on apprenticeship program this Friday

An opportunity for business owners on the North Coast to hear more about an apprenticeship program in the region is coming up this Friday as the Prince Rupert Chamber of Commerce hosts a luncheon session on the theme.

Taking place in the BC Room of the Crest Hotel from 11:15 to 12:45, the Friday session will feature a panel discussion on the success of the apprenticeship program in the community.

Panel members are to be made up of local employers, school district representatives and apprentices who will provide some background to the popular program in the Prince Rupert area.

ITA’s local Apprenticeship Advisor will also share resources and supports that are available to employer sponsors, including tax credits, to ensure you and your apprentice have a successful apprenticeship.

The Prince Rupert Chamber of Commerce will also speak to Chamber memberships and the importance of connecting with the local business community.

You can learn more about the Friday luncheon from the Chamber of Commerce Facebook page and website.

Yesterday we outlined the plans to deliver another 20,000 dollars in funding to the School District from the Industry Training Authority, which offers a range of training initiatives for secondary school students across the province.

School District 52 was among 46 school districts in the province to receive the additional funding as part of this weeks announcement.
