Of individuals registered in an apprenticeship program between 2002 and 2004, those who completed their program had hourly wages in 2007 that were 21 per cent higher on average than those who did not, says a new study from Statistics Canada. Certification, completion, and the wages of registered apprentices, 2007 (see document on right) used the 2007 National Apprenticeship Survey to compare hourly wage differences between apprentices who complete their programs and apprentices who discontinued their programs. The primary objective was to estimate the magnitude of the wage difference between these groups while taking into account a broad range of characteristics.
