A two-year, $43.6 million investment in Newfoundland & Labrador's apprenticeship, science and technology has meant 9% more registered apprentices this year, more individuals writing inter-provincial exams, and 60% more tradespeople being certified.  There are also more workers earning Red Seals, which are recognized regardless of province or territory.  New programs have been added at the College of the North Atlantic, and the number of seats has double in the province.
