Just got an update on the situation here in Toronto. Apparently there are 1500 unemployed plumbing apprentices right now in the Local 46. Doesn't look like I'll have much of a chance getting in. Looks like I'll be making the move to Alberta this summer.

When you guys visited the union halls in Calgary and Edmonton how desperate did they sound for apprentices?

Not a plumber, but on my jobsite before I went for school in Calgary, they began hiring a lot of spanish speaking women just because they couldn't find anybody to fill a lot of the plumber apprentice positions. Come out bro.
