Canadian Apprenticeship Forum and GAN Global Join Forces to Promote Apprenticeships Worldwide

The Global Apprenticeship Network (GAN) is pleased to announce its partnership with the Canadian Apprenticeship Forum (CAF-FCA). Committed to providing a forum for exchange of  ideas, information, and resources, CAF-FCA brings together businesses, labour organizations, education providers, and government representatives to support apprenticeship training and skilled trades in Canada. As a country partner of GAN Global, CAF will have access to a worldwide network to share best practices and engage in dialogue with other organizations committed to promoting work-based learning (WBL).

GAN Global is an international network bringing together businesses, organizations, and governments to promote and support the expansion of quality apprenticeships worldwide as a means of equipping individuals with the skills needed to succeed in today's rapidly changing economy. In partnership with GAN Global, CAF-FCA seeks to better understand the application of other WBL and apprenticeship models in various countries. Exploring international examples and practices will encourage and inspire the Canadian apprenticeship community to push beyond current systems, processes, and politics to find new and better approaches to apprenticeship training.

“We are proud to partner with GAN and look forward to this unique collaboration to promotework-based learning. This important step will allow CAF-FCA to share and learn from international apprenticeship best practices to address skills gaps and ensure a robust pipeline of skilled trades talent for Canada.” France Daviault, CEO – Canadian Apprenticeship Forum
