Barrie | by Bayshore News Staff  
The 2019 Ontario Budget promises to modernize apprenticeship training...

Officials at Georgian College like at least one thing they see in the provincial budget.

The document presented yesterday by the Ford government, promises to modernize apprenticeship training.

The province plans to create a single on-line window for people who want to enrol in an apprenticeship program.

Georgian says the current application process is complex and bureaucratic, with potential apprentices having a tough time being matched with employers who need them.

College president MaryLynn West Moynes belies the new approach will produce more apprentices to help Ontario close the skills gap.
