If you have any questions or comments regarding the accessibility of this publication, please contact us at

The purpose of this enactment is to establish a process for co-operation between all stakeholders in order to establish standards for apprenticeship, institutional training and certification for prescribed trades and secure the recognition of those standards across Canada. The standards will recognize the labour market and the need for a school-to-work transition.
The Minister of Human Resources and Skills Development is given the power to establish a national apprenticeship and training advisory committee (NATAC) for each prescribed trade with representatives from the provinces and from labour, industry and instructional stakeholders. The NATAC will advise the Minister with respect to the trade it represents.
An annual report on the functions of the NATACs will be laid before each House of Parliament and will be referred to a standing committee.
