Apprenticeship Procurement Project

Apprenticeship Procurement

Provincially-funded Construction

The Nova Scotia Apprenticeship Agency, in partnership with the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal and the Construction Association of Nova Scotia, introduced requirements where contractors bidding on provincially-funded construction projects must be engaged in the Apprenticeship Program. Starting in January 2016, the Apprenticeship Procurement Program was piloted on the building of new schools.

Effective January 8, 2019, the new Apprenticeship Procurement Program is extended to all contractors bidding on any provincially-funded construction project over $1M. For more information, please see the supporting documentation below.
