Landscape Horticulture Red Seal to be harmonized by fall 2018

Since the Forum of Labour Market Ministers (FLMM) announced its strategic plan to harmonize 30 Red Seal trades in most jurisdictions by 2020, with an effort to harmonize training for two-thirds of Red Seal apprentices by 2017, the Canadian Council of Directors of Apprenticeship (CCDA) has made great progress. Work is well underway to harmonize the next set of five trades by September 2018 (including Landscape Horticulture). The CCDA has commended the strong collaboration between industry, training stakeholders and apprenticeship authorities who make the harmonization of apprenticeship training possible.
