Trade Harmonization (Atlantic and National Initiatives)

The Nova Scotia Apprenticeship Agency (NSAA) is an active participant on harmonization initiatives at the national level and in the Atlantic region to provide greater consistency in apprenticeship training and improve apprentice mobility across the country.

The core challenge is that provinces and territories across Canada are separately responsible for apprenticeship training, resulting in 13 different systems. The approach is to collaborate with other jurisdictions to harmonize key elements of the systems.
