The Red Seal program was established to provide greater mobility across Canada for skilled workers. Through the program, both apprentices who have completed their training and certified journeypersons are able to obtain a Red Seal endorsement on their Certificate of Qualification by successfully completing an Interprovincial Standards Examination (IP Exam).
The Red Seal endorsement is a recognized standard in jurisdictions across Canada, one that employers look for as an indication of skills and competency.
Once you obtain the Red Seal endorsement, you can work anywhere in Canada without further training or examination.
How can I obtain a Red Seal endorsement on my certificate?
For more information on obtaining a Red Seal endorsement on your Certificate of Qualification, please contact the Training Officer responsible for your trade/region.
