There are numerous benefits to joining our apprenticeship program including hands-on learning, meeting new people with similar interests, learning while earning and further discovering your interests in the trade. We hire apprentices from the ICI sector and local students interested in engaging in an apprenticeship program with the Toronto District School Board (TDSB). At the Maintenance Construction and Skilled Trades Council, we assist students by helping them get started with the right affiliate. They then attend school three different times over the course of their program for eight weeks at a time, this is the in-class portion of the program. The whole program runs for approximately 5-6 years. Currently, we have 20 apprentices working at the TDSB. We are available to assist you in any further inquiries you may have.
