I know that initial apprentice position is very tough. Where abouts are you looking for an apprentice position? What type of apprentice position (truck, equipment, auto)?

Apprenticeship is tough especially on Vancouver Island where even Journeyman are having a hard time finding work. The best places to apprentice are generally Dealerships as you will get factory training along with the experience of working under a journeyman. What I recommend is a dealership with several locations so that you can transfer within the company if certain locations do not work out for you.

Also it is easier in bigger towns that deal with natural resources or are doing a lot of construction. Mining towns, oil patch communities or growing cities can all offer good learning opportunities for apprentices. As the price of natural resources is low right now there is more stability in Agriculture so it might be a good idea to try to get in with a John Deere, CASE IH or Massey dealership.

you may want to consider moving to the mainland, and go for a disposal company maybe, I know of one that is needing mechanics, and it dosn't realy matter if said mechanic is a journeyman or apprentice, they do need help
