ITA and WorkBC launched a new innovative online Apprentice Job Match tool which will better connect British Columbian apprentices looking for on-the-job training they need to boost their skills and achieve certification in their chosen trade.
How does the Job Match tool help APPRENTICES?
Jobseekers can use the tool to identify themselves as an apprentice, for example a Level 2 Plumber, and then search to see which employers in this province are looking to sponsor an apprentice in that particular trade and level.

How does the Job Match tool help EMPLOYERS?
Employers can use the online Apprentice Job Match tool to add apprentice-specific information to their job posting, to help find the right apprentice for their workforce. Start by creating an account and posting a job on the Work BC website.
By 2022, there are expected to be a million job openings in British Columbia. These job openings will create major new opportunities, including expanding liquefied natural gas (LNG), new mines and mining expansions, expanding shipbuilding, growing forestry exports, and increased activity in transportation. ITA is committed to building a skilled workforce to help ensure that British Columbians have the skills they need to be first in line for the many opportunities across the province.
The introduction of the Apprentice Job Match tool is part of ITA's increased efforts to better support apprentices through the apprenticeship pathway and to increase continuation and completion rates across the province.
