The award will be presented every second year to a staff member who has demonstrated inspirational leadership in the promotion and development of standards for apprenticeship training and trade certification.
Award recipients will have made an outstanding contribution to the promotion and development of apprenticeship and trade certification for Red Seal trades on the pan-Canadian or provincial/territorial level. The recipient will have distinguished himself or herself during their career through one or more of the following:
• Ongoing promotion of apprenticeship and trade certification as a means to a successful and productive career
• Supporting apprentices as they strive for success
• Leading and/or supporting the growth and development of the Red Seal Program
Specifically, an individual has:
• Participated in activities that encourage, motivate and promote dedication and passion in a skilled trade
• Served as a role model for success

Possession of an Interprovincial Red Seal Endorsement is an asset.
