AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRIES ASSOCIATION OF CANADA
Untitled Document Government Relations > Skills Shortage

Skills Shortages

Over the course of the next few years, it is estimated that 50% of automotive service technicians will begin to retire; the industry and HRDC predict that there will not be sufficient numbers of technicians to keep pace with the attrition. The independent installer represents the core market for the traditional aftermarket. AIA believes government skills policies must include skills required to maintain technically complex vehicles for consumers once they are manufactured, and will work with government on a number of initiatives to ensure this happens.

Initiatives include: tax credits for apprenticeships; tax credits to employers who participate in coop education/work programs or accredited apprenticeship programs; support and funding for hands-on training to more apprentices, including equipment upgrades; co-marketing of auto sector jobs with academia; industry-government working groups to improve the image of automotive careers; improving transferability of credentials between colleges and universities; and the use technology to overcome cost, time, and geographic barriers to training, especially for small businesses.
