Apprenticeship Awards to Honour Outstanding Contributions in the Skilled Trades

Released on October 27, 2017

New journeypersons will be honoured for their achievements in the skilled trades at the Annual Apprenticeship Awards, hosted by the Saskatchewan Apprenticeship and Trade Certification Commission (SATCC) at the Conexus Arts Centre tonight in Regina.

The awards will recognize the 34 journeypersons who achieved the highest marks on the journeyperson certification exam in their designated trades between July 1, 2016, and June 30, 2017.  Additional awards will be presented to apprentices, employers, instructors, and Skills Canada Saskatchewan competition gold medal winners.

“On behalf of the Government of Saskatchewan, congratulations to the outstanding new journeypersons on the results of your commitment and hard work,” Economy Minister Steven Bonk said.  “I am pleased to celebrate those who will be honoured at the Apprenticeship Awards this year.  I would also like to thank all of those employers who support apprentices and journeypersons in the skilled trades.”

More than 400 people are expected to attend this year’s 17th annual Apprenticeship Awards.  In addition to awards from SATCC, 13 industry partners will also present their own awards at the event.

“The apprenticeship system is strong due to the partnerships between the SATCC, the Government of Saskatchewan, technical training providers, trade boards, employers and apprentices,” SATCC Commission Board Chair Drew Tiefenbach said.  “These awards recognize those partnerships, as well as celebrate the accomplishments of new journeypersons and stakeholders who have made significant contributions to the skilled trades.”

The apprenticeship awards receive financial support each year from many organizations, including three Platinum Sponsors in 2017: the Construction Opportunities Development Council Inc., the Prairie Arctic Trades Training Centre, and the Saskatchewan Construction Association.  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.
