The British Columbia Construction Association (BCCA) said in an announcement last Wednesday that there is still $4 million available to be given out to construction companies that apply for its Apprenticeship Services project.

This project, which is funded by the Government of Canada’s Canadian Apprenticeship Strategy’s Apprenticeship Service initiative, allows businesses to receive a $5,000-per-employee incentive cash bonus if they hire first-year apprentices for 39 Red Seal Trades. However, if those apprentices self-identify as LGBT, a person of color, a woman, or a disabled person, the cash inventive doubles to $10,000.
