Outstanding New Journeypersons To Be Celebrated at Annual Apprenticeship Awards

Released on October 20, 2016

This year, 34 new journeypersons will be recognized for their outstanding achievements at an awards event hosted by the Saskatchewan Apprenticeship and Trade Certification Commission (SATCC) at the Queensbury Convention Centre in Regina Friday, October 21.  The new journeypersons will be recognized for achieving the highest marks on the journeyperson certification exam in their designated trades between July 1, 2015 and June 30, 2016.

“To achieve the highest mark on a journeyperson certification exam requires hard work and unwavering dedication,” Economy Minister Jeremy Harrison said.  “On behalf of the Government of Saskatchewan, congratulations to these new journeypersons and all the 2016 award recipients.”

“These awards celebrate the accomplishments of new journeypersons and other individuals who make significant contributions to the skilled trades,” SATCC Commission Board Chair Doug Christie said.  “They acknowledge that partnerships between the commission, the Government of Saskatchewan, technical training providers, trade boards, employers and apprentices are key to sustaining a successful apprenticeship system.”

More than 400 people are expected to attend this year’s sixteenth Apprenticeship Awards, an event that also presents a variety of awards to people involved in the skilled trades, including trade board members, technical training providers, employers and Skills Canada Saskatchewan Competition gold medal winners.  Eleven industry partners will also present their own awards at the event.

The Apprenticeship Awards receive financial support each year from many organizations, including two Event Partners in 2016: the CODC Construction Opportunities Development Council Inc. (CODC) and the United Association of Plumbers and Pipefitters, Local 179 (UA 179).

“The CODC is pleased to support the 2016 Apprenticeship Awards as an event partner,” CODC Co-Chair Warren Douglas said.  “This event brings together individuals from different industries all across the province to celebrate one thing: excellence in the skilled trades.  We are thrilled to be part of that.”

“UA 179 has participated in the Apprenticeship Awards for many years and we are happy to step up our involvement this year as an event partner,” UA 179 Business Manager Bill Peters said.  “This event acknowledges the significant contributions of those involved in the skilled trades—from new journeypersons to instructors to employers.”

The event kicks off at 5:30 p.m. with cocktails and appetizers, followed by supper at 6:30 p.m. and the awards presentation at 7:45 p.m.
