Provincial Government launches two new initiatives to support skilled trades professionals in Nova Scotia

The Province of Nova Scotia is making it easier for people to become certified in the skilled trades sector with two new initiatives as part of the plan to grow Nova Scotia’s skilled trades workforce.

The first initiative is funding more training seats in high-demand trades, which has resulted in almost 200 apprentices being moved off wait lists and into technical training to continue their journey to certification.

The other initiative is waiving certification exam fees for trades professionals who are experienced but are not registered apprentices.
