Introduction to this survey

Apprenticeship training programs are the responsibility of each province and territory in Canada. For this reason, there are aspects of the programs that can be slightly different depending on the province or territory.  The Ellis Chart is the place where all programs across Canada are listed, and key features of the programs are provided so that they can be compared across provinces and territories.  If you are not familiar with the Ellis Chart, please take a few minutes to look over a chart for a trade before completing this survey.

The Ellis Chart is produced by Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) in partnership with the Canadian Council of Directors of Apprenticeship (CCDA).  In order to improve the usability and value of the tool, the CCDA is examining its features.  We would appreciate input from users of the site.

The survey is simple – just 2 questions for each element of the site, and a question about what else you would want the site to include.

(It might be a good idea to have an Ellis Chart for a trade open in another window so that you can check each element before you answer the question)
