The second issue of CAJ-JCA is released

CAF-FCA invites YOU to be part of the Dialogue!

OTTAWA, July 8 /CNW Telbec/ - The Canadian Apprenticeship Forum - Forum canadien sur l'apprentissage (CAF-FCA) is pleased to release the second issue of the Canadian Apprenticeship Journal - Journal canadien de l'apprentissage (CAJ-JCA) online at

Check out our latest addition to the Journal, What's New in Apprenticeship Research?, to get an overview of some of the more recent research on apprenticeship training and certification that has been done in Canada and around the world. This section provides readers with brief descriptions of the papers, articles and reports and the links through which they can be accessed.

If you know of other current or forthcoming research that would be of interest to the apprenticeship community, or if you have any suggestions on the format for this new section, please contact Danielle at

CAF-FCA's goal is to share a wide range of perspectives on various topics in apprenticeship and certification. Some highlights in this second issue of the Journal include:

    -   A keynote interview on the importance of apprenticeship training from
        a business standpoint featuring Don Oborowsky, President of Waiward
        Steel Fabricators Ltd.
    -   The Canadian Automotive Repair and Service Council (CARS) talks to us
        about what is happening in the automotive industry's labour market.
    -   And not to be missed, we will feature another international study
        that demonstrates the positive return for employers who invest in
        apprentices - this time from the U.K.

Don't miss out on the opportunity to submit an article for our third issue! This one will focus on completion in apprenticeship and, to provoke some initial thinking in this area, we are including the article, "Research Approaches to Understanding Apprenticeship Completion Rates", in this second issue.

We encourage you to consider the insights offered and hope it will spark your interest in learning more about this challenging and complex topic in the Fall 2010 edition of the Journal. You may even be inspired to submit your own article for consideration!

To do so, simply respond to our Call for Articles on Completion in Apprenticeship. Take the opportunity to share findings and inform the dialogue on apprenticeship in Canada by contributing to this unique peer-reviewed e-journal. We will be accepting research papers and feature articles for consideration for the third issue of the Journal until Monday, August 9, 2010 at 5:00 p.m. PDT. For full details, please see
