I have managed 50 national and provincial apprenticeship projects over 12 years at the Canadian Apprenticeship Forum. I have experience reviewing secondary research, gathering best practices, conducting interviews, analyzing survey results and writing research reports. I have worked with a diverse number of apprenticeship stakeholders on project Working Groups and the Canadian Apprenticeship Forum's research committee. I have worked in partnership with provincial apprenticeship authorities to host workshops engaging employers, labour representatives, First Nations, women's organizatons and educators.
