Evaluation of the CBTU In The Trades Program - SRDC

Evaluation of the CBTU In The Trades Program

Canada’s Building Trades Unions (CBTU) created the In The Trades (ITT) apprenticeship program to support unionized contractors in Canada by providing financial incentives to hire and effectively onboard and retain first-year apprentices, particularly those from equity-deserving groups. CBTU has engaged SRDC to conduct an evaluation of the ITT project to determine the effectiveness of the program in providing financial incentives and support to SMEs to hire and retain new first-year apprentices as well as increasing the representation of the equity-deserving groups in the skilled trades. SRDC is also documenting the role of stakeholder partnerships to improve participation rates and project success and capturing project operations, best practices, resources, and innovations in the project model.
