The Red Seal Program, is a program that sets common standards for tradespeople in Canada. There are currently over 50 trades recognized in the Red Seal program. A Red Seal endorsement is a seal on your provincial or territorial trade certificate. It shows that you have the knowledge and skills necessary to practice your trade across Canada.
The great thing about working towards your Red Seal is that the four years to completion is mainly on the job, earning while you learn as an apprentice!
Right now Skilled Trades in BC are in huge demand. There are more than 80 skilled trade occupations with more than half with Red Seal endorsements.
