CAF-FCA and ACCC Share Findings of Joint Research on Apprentices’ Career Paths
OTTAWA, March 31 – The Canadian Apprenticeship Forum-Forum canadien sur l’apprentissage (CAF-FCA) has released reports on two important studies examining the return on apprenticeship training investment for apprentices. Conducted in collaboration with the Association of Canadian Community Colleges (ACCC), the two studies compliment the CAF-FCA’s groundbreaking 2006 investigation into the return on apprenticeship training investment for employers.

Apprentices Enrolled in Classroom Training at Private Training Providers presents the comparative findings of a parallel study undertaken by CAF-FCA of apprentices enrolled with private training providers.

Both studies were funded by Human Resources and Social Development Canada (HRSDC).
The CAF-FCA is a not-for-profit, multi-partite organization that brings together the key constituents within the apprentice community to influence pan-Canadian apprenticeship strategies through research, discussion and collaboration.
