Overview

The Saskatchewan Apprenticeship and Trade Certification Commission (SATCC) has implemented a new initiative aimed at attracting women to the skilled trades and helping them achieve journeyperson certification.

From January 8, 2024 until June 30, 2026, women in eligible Red Seal trades will receive a rebate on their apprenticeship registration fee and Level 1 technical training tuition. Fees are required to be paid up front through MyATC. However, the full amount will be refunded to whoever paid the fees.

During this time, SATCC is also employing two Consultants to coach and mentor women apprentices in the eligible Red Seal trades and their employers. If you’re interested in accessing these coaching services, please contact us at [email protected] or 1-877-363-0536.

This initiative is funded in part by the Government of Canada's Canadian Apprenticeship Strategy through the Women in Skilled Trades program.
