Reach him at Support Ontario Youth Matches Apprentices With Employers BY VERONICA BOTNICK, CCCA “Learn to live in the awkward.” This is the advice given by Melanie Winter, Program Manager for the Industrial Trades with Support Ontario Youth (SOY), on how to transition from school into the workforce. SOY’s goal is to prepare and aid Ontarians interested in skilled trades apprenticeships. Often, Ontarians looking to enter the skilled trades job market run into a well-known negative feedback loop. Employers are looking for indi- viduals with experience yet struggle to provide this work experience. That is where SOY comes in. By matching ap- prentices to employers, SOY supports both the apprentice and the employer by removing barriers and helping navi- gate the apprenticeship journey. With the recovering supply chain, the Canadian Corru- gated and Containerboard Association (CCCA) has part- nered with SOY to bring on more industrial electricians. This is to help ensure an efficient and positive experience while completing their apprenticeships, and ultimately as they transition into a fully skilled tradesperson. SOY offers a variety of resources for employers and apprentices while acting as a bridge for candidates in mul- tiple trades. Committed and aspiring apprentices come to SOY in hopes of learning to “live in the awkward.” They understand the apprenticeship journey through coaching, mentoring, and networking, giving them the tools to com- municate with their peers and more experienced individu- als in the industry. This is not the first time the CCCA has worked with SOY for apprentices. The CCCA began its partnership with SOY Phillip Perry
