About us

The Saskatchewan Apprenticeship and Trade Certification Commission (SATCC) oversees and administers the apprenticeship and trade certification system in Saskatchewan.

In this role, the SATCC fulfills four primary functions.

The SATCC:
• trains apprentices;
• certifies tradespeople and apprentices;
• regulates the apprenticeship system of training; and
• promotes apprenticeship as a way for employers to meet their labour market requirements.

The SATCC is an industry-led, arms-length government organization dedicated to training apprentices and certifying tradespeople.

We are an educational institution—much like a college, university or technical training institution. We are also a certification body responsible for issuing journeyperson certificates.

The key difference between our education system and other education institutions is we don’t train apprentices ourselves on site. Instead, we rely on thousands of individual employers to deliver the bulk of the training to their own apprentice employees in their workplaces under the guidance of skilled journeyperson mentors. We also contract other institutions—Saskatchewan Polytechnic and regional colleges, for instance—to provide theory-based technical training to complement the work-based learning.


Our Vision
The most skilled and representative workforce, industry trained and certified.
Our Mandate
To develop, promote and execute a relevant, accessible and responsive apprenticeship training and certification system to meet the needs of employers, apprentices, journeypersons and tradespersons.
Our Values
Industry-focus, Collaboration, Responsiveness, Equity, Diversity, Transparency, Accountability, Innovation, Excellence, Courage.

One of the questions our SYA team frequently gets asked is “What’s the best trade to get into?” It all depends. It depends on the trade you’re interested in: is the trade currently in high demand? It depends on the aspects of the trade: does it have a residential, commercial, or industrial sector to it? It depends on your work ethic and your goals: how hard do you want to work? Do you want to start a business, work for yourself or work for someone else?

Our SYA Manager Paul gives this advice: “Choose a trade you have a passion for and can see yourself doing for many years. Hone your skills through the apprenticeship training system, then a successful career will follow.”

Our Field Consultant Katilyn presented virtually to folks from the Regina Open Door Society Inc. this morning. Great engagement from all those who attended!

Some popular topics of discussion included the financial supports and benefits available to apprentices. While attending technical training, apprentices may be eligible to receive Employment Insurance as well as the Apprenticeship Training Allowance. Apprentices can also apply for grants such as the Apprenticeship Incentive Grant, the Apprenticeship Incentive Grant for Women, and the Apprenticeship Completion Grant.
