MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — The search for Ontario employers helping to build tomorrow’s skilled workforce by training new apprentices started Monday at Flo Components in Mississauga.

Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities Glen Murray announced the search for nominations for the Minister’s Awards for Apprenticeship Training, which celebrates employers that show leadership in training apprentices, at the firm that won the 2011 Central region prize.

“Ontario boasts more than 122,000 apprentices learning a trade today – that’s double the number from 2002-03,” he said. “We salute employers that train apprentices, and recognize that continuing to enhance our apprenticeship system will help build the skilled workforce Ontario needs to succeed.”

Nominations are being accepted until Feb. 29. For more information or to submit a nomination, visit www.ontario.ca/srv/bindings/a5674228f855478588cca595e430d9a3/coderenticeshipawards.
