Media Advisory - Canadian apprenticeship and Aboriginal human resource leaders reveal national Aboriginal trades framework

    VICTORIA, BC, June 9 /CNW/ - Two national events will join delegations
for a joint plenary session with over 700 leaders in apprenticeship, trades
employment/training and human resources, to reveal and discuss a new national
framework to advance Aboriginal participation in trades and apprenticeship.
    The delegation will learn how a collective and national approach to
increase the recruitment and retention of Aboriginal people in trades could
create opportunities for Aboriginal people, and aggressively advance a
home-made solution to Canada's shortage of skilled trades workers.
