Who We Are

The Electrical Apprentice Training Alliance (The Alliance) has been in existence for 50 years. It is under the direction of the Greater Toronto Electrical Contractors Association (GTECA) and the Local Union 353 of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW).

 

The Alliance is comprised of an equal number of representatives from the Greater Toronto ECA and the IBEW LU 353 which creates a governing body called the Council. The Council sets the Policies, Procedures, and Expectations for which the Alliance operates under as well as takes direction regarding the Apprenticeship Program. The Council meets on a regular basis to discuss content and direction for the Program. The Council also works to address any  changes imposed by the Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development (MLTSD) and the Ontario College of Trades (OCOT).

 

The Alliance's purpose is to recruit, select, counsel and educate 309A Construction and Maintenance electrical apprentices and Network Cable Specialists (NCS) within the Greater Toronto Area. Our area of responsibility is from Lake Ontario north to Parry Sound and from Trenton in the east to Oakville in the west.

 

The Program we offer has been developed to guide and support apprentices from application through to passing their Certificate of Qualification (C of Q) for Journeyperson status. As this apprenticeship is hours-based, the length of time it takes to complete the apprenticeship can vary between individuals. Generally speaking,  the average time to complete the program is approximately 6 years.

 

The intake process is based on labour demand and the Alliance is informed of this demand by the Local Joint Conference Board (LJCB). The LJCB determines how many workers are required, and in turn the Alliance opens an intake process based on those numbers.
