Establishing Apprenticeship Day

Under the new Special Days Act, Apprenticeship Day will be recognized annually on the fourth Monday of September.

Tradespeople are the backbone of Alberta’s economy. It is essential we encourage young people to enter the trades and promote the tremendous value of apprenticeship education. Trades school costs less, takes less time and you make virtually the same as a university graduate. Our government remains committed to expanding apprenticeship education and promoting its parity of esteem with traditional education.
