We’re pleased to announce the launch of a new Small Business BC Award this year. The Best Apprentice Training Award, presented by BCIT and Industry Training Authority, recognizes a local small business leading the skilled trades community in training and development.
Skilled trades make an essential contribution to the Canadian economy, producing over 50 per cent of Canada’s GDP. And with 40 per cent of new jobs being created in skilled trades and technology in the next decade, the industry’s importance continues to grow.
This award honours a business that represents the best of the trades community in BC. By raising the bar for training and apprenticeship and by dedicating themselves to helping their employees reach their full potential, they provide value to their clients and the skilled trades industry. Nominations are open to all skilled trades businesses in BC, from hairstylists to construction.
The winner will be able to demonstrate:
- Industry leadership
- Apprenticeship growth and development
- Community impact and quality of service
