The government of B.C. has proclaimed November as Apprenticeship Recognition Month – an opportunity to appreciate, thank and acknowledge the critical contribution apprentices make to the province’s communities, industries and economy.

It is also an opportunity to recognize all the employer sponsors and training providers who train and support apprentices on their journey to certification. 

Read the official proclamation.

Leah’s Automotive 

We are proud to share the story of Leah Gillanders, a certified Automotive Service Technician who brushed off those who doubted her and followed her passion for cars and technology to complete her training and Red Seal certification. That passion and dedication eventually led to her opening her own shop in North Vancouver and the opportunity to merge that business with her other interests and community.
