Red Seal Trades

Red Seal Trades

The Red Seal endorsement on a journeyperson’s Certificate of Qualification confirms that the person has achieved a nationally recognized level of competency in the trade.

The Red Seal also means that the journeyperson is licensed to practice his/her trade in any province or territory of Canada. Many “Red Seal” certificates are also valued abroad.

For more information about the Red Seal Program, visit or speak to your Co-op teacher.
