Industry Training Authority

The Industry Training Authority (ITA) leads and coordinates British Columbia’s skilled trades system.

ITA works with employers, employees, industry, labour, training providers and government to issue credentials, supports apprenticeships, fund programs, set program standards and increase opportunities in the trades. 

On April 29, 2014 the BC government made public the ITA mandate review report as part of a larger initiative--BC’s Skills for Jobs Blueprint--which is to develop a skilled workforce that is ready to meet the challenges of our expanding industry.
