The Union Training and Innovation Program (UTIP) supports the Government of Canada’s commitment to strengthen union-based apprenticeship training, innovation and enhanced partnerships. The program has two streams:
The UTIP’s objective is to improve the quality of training in the skilled trades enabling a more skilled, certified and productive workforce.
The Program also aims to improve the participation of key groups in the skilled trades to have a more inclusive workforce. The Program targets key groups, for example:
- Indigenous people
- Persons with disabilities
- Visible minorities
Projects that will strengthen training in the trades to better support a skilled, inclusive, certified and productive trades workforce in order to achieve the following objectives:
- Increase investment in up-to-date training equipment and materials for higher quality training, leading to a more skilled and productive trades workforce;
- Improve the participation and success of key groups in trades training and careers (including women, Indigenous people, newcomers, persons with disabilities, and visible minorities/racialized persons); and
- Enhance broad-based partnerships between organizations (e.g. with employers, community/non-profit groups, and educational institutions and other training providers).
