Review of apprentice system


— Human Resources and Skills Development Canada has created a new apprenticeship advisory committee to consult with business, labour and provincial governments. The committee will synthesize the views of workplace partners on issues such as increasing the participation of business and labour in apprenticeship, and improving the interprovincial mobility of apprentices and skilled tradespeople. The committee will submit its final report by the end of September 2005.
