Employer Consortiums

Making life easier for Employers who hire apprentices

Our manufacturing consortiums are composed of employers, colleges, government training consultants, and union representatives looking to solve workforce development issues including apprenticeships.

Our consortia have been remarkably successful in helping manufacturers and communities increase the supply of skilled tradespersons and other technical occupations. To date, our regional consortia have helped local manufacturers find over 1,900 apprentices and other skilled workers.

Our consortiums operate in Hamilton, Sault Ste. Marie, Kitchener-Waterloo, Peel Region and The Greater Toronto Area.
