Union Training and Innovation Program
The Union Training and Innovation Program (UTIP) supports the Government of Canada's commitment to strengthen union-based apprenticeship training, innovation and enhanced partnerships.
Funding for the new UTIP will roll out with approximately $10 million for 2017–18 and $25 million annually thereafter. The program has two streams:
- Stream 1 supports cost-shared purchases of equipment and materials for training (union-led).
- Stream 2 supports innovative approaches to address challenges that limit apprenticeship outcomes (union involvement required).
The UTIP’s objective is to improve the quality of training in the trades to better support a skilled, inclusive, certified and productive trades workforce. It also aims to address barriers that prevent key groups, such as women and Indigenous people, from succeeding in the trades.
