The Canadian Apprenticeship Forum (CAF-FCA) is pleased to announce the Theme Partner for its next national conference, taking place June 5 – 7, 2016 in
Vancouver, BC. The National Electrical Trade Council (NETCO)—an industry-funded, nonprofit organization that provides strategic national leadership on workforce development linked
to Red Seal electrical trades—will be the lead sponsor at the biennial event geared to connecting Canada’s apprenticeship stakeholders.

“We are pleased to have NETCO lead our sponsor line-up at our next conference. The event brings together the apprenticeship community to share promising apprenticeship training
insights and initiatives,” said Sarah Watts-Rynard, Executive Director at CAF-FCA. “Given the important role the electrical sector plays in apprenticeship training, and NETCO’s commitment
to skills development in that sector, we are thrilled they have agreed to be our Theme Partner.”

NETCO is jointly sponsored by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), First District, Canada and the Canadian Electrical Contractors Association (CECA) to promote
national standards, apprenticeship and journeyperson skills training for the electrical industry in Canada. CAF-FCA is a national organization that conducts apprenticeship research, promotes
collaboration among the apprenticeship community and promotes careers in the skilled trades.
