Atlantic Apprenticeship Harmonization Project (AAHP)

Atlantic Apprenticeship Harmonization Project (AAHP)

The government of Prince Edward Island is currently involved in the Atlantic Apprenticeship Harmonization Project (AAHP) which is a priority of the Atlantic Workforce Partnership and an initiative of the Council of Atlantic Premiers.  A skilled workforce is vital for a thriving economy. By harmonizing our apprenticeship programs, we are helping to create a stronger, more consistent workforce, as well as increasing labor mobility within the Atlantic Region.

  • There have been some important changes to PEI Apprenticeship Training Under the Atlantic Apprenticeship Harmonization Project (AAHP). Before signing up for apprenticeship training, please read these changes to make sure you understand how they may affect your apprenticeship and block release training. The information will be updated as changes occur. Click here for more details.

    Atlantic Trade Advisory Committees (ATAC)

    It is very important that PEI has membership on these trade advisory committees. Island representation will ensure our tradespeople have an opportunity to provide input and recommendations in the development of harmonized apprenticeship and trade certification programs. This in turn will lead to a harmonized apprenticeship system across Atlantic Canada.

    Under the authority of the Atlantic Apprenticeship Council (AAC) an Atlantic Trade Advisory Committee is responsible for providing input and recommendations to the development of harmonized apprenticeship and trade certification programs leading to harmonized apprenticeship systems across Atlantic Canada.

    In Fall 2015, PEI Apprenticeship will be soliciting applications from employers, employees and apprenticeship instructors to represent PEI on an Atlantic Trade Advisory Committee for the trades of Plumber and Steamfitter/Pipefitter.  

    If you would like to put your name forward to be part of this initiative and would like an information package, please contact Roger MacInnis, Apprenticeship Training Officer, at 902-894-0225 or
