Toronto, ON — Skilled Trades Ontario is hosting its first industry summit titled “Unleashing Ontario’s Potential,” which will focus on apprenticeship training. The summit will run on May 3, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m, at the Toronto Congress Centre.
“Unleashing Ontario’s Potential will focus on the importance of apprenticeship training in shaping the future of our province. The summit will bring together industry leaders, educators, and apprentices to discuss best practices, share ideas, and explore new opportunities to support and grow apprenticeship in Ontario,” explains Skilled Trades Ontario.
