Apprenticeship Mobility

Across Canada, provinces and territories have protocols and agreements in place to allow apprentices to relocate anywhere in the country without disruption to their Apprenticeship.

This is an important benefit that provides flexibility and freedom to apprentices and enables them to pursue different opportunities.

To support this mobility, provincial and territorial protocols and agreements have been established, including the Provincial-Territorial Apprentice Mobility Protocol and the Provincial-Territorial Apprentice Mobility Agreement, which covers:

  • Apprentices who wish to move for work, to undergo technical training, or to take exams.
  • Apprentices who wish to permanently relocate within Canada, with assurance that they will receive recognition for their completed training and exams in the same or equivalent trade.
