The Aboriginal Apprenticeship Board of Ontario was founded on research indicating the challenges and barriers that Indigenous youth and their communities face with equitable access to training and employment in the skilled trades through apprenticeship.

The Board works in conjunction with a Partnership Advisory Committee comprised of industry and government representation. Our partners and collaborators are national in scope and 4 years ago we began our national expansion. Indigenous people are more likely to suffer from invisible mental health related concerns due to the intersectional and intergenerational trauma handed from one generation to the next. Any and all assistance and recognition that can be offered to identify and overcome accessibility issues for Indigenous people will only serve to improve opportunities for their success. We bring an Indigenous perspective and input to the necessary work being conducted by CAN.
