You are invited to participate in a review of the draft of the new Red Seal Occupational Standard (RSOS) for the Cabinetmaker trade for Canada.
A draft of the standard was developed at a national virtual workshop attended by trade experts and apprenticeship instructors from across Canada. After this online survey is completed, provincial and territorial industry and apprenticeship committees will also review and validate this standard. In preparation for this step, we would like to give individuals who would like to participate the opportunity to do so.
For this trade, the standard is divided into Major Work Activities, which are broken down into Tasks, which are further broken down into distinct Sub-Tasks.
Deadline: August 31, 2020.
The survey is completely voluntary and is anonymous, though if you possess a Red Seal, the first digits of your Red Seal number will be requested (these do not identify any individual).
All comments will be forwarded to your province/territory’s apprenticeship authority to review with their committees for consideration.

You can start the survey and resume at a later time, as long as you work from the same device (laptop, tablet, smartphone) every time.
Thank you for participating in the survey.
On April 6, 2020, best practices for GIS inspections during COVID-19 was approved by the Board of Directors.
The recommendations are intended to help Inspectors, AWMAC members, General Contractors and Owners stay safe while continuing to work towards project completion.
At no time will an inspection take precedent over the health and safety of any person. The Inspector has the right to refuse an inspection based on health and safety concerns. All inspections must comply with local municipal and provincial regulations.
To view the best practices, please click here.
Each year, participating AWMAC Chapters hold a contest for apprentices, students and recent graduates that are enrolled or have recently graduated from a recognized post-secondary institution’s cabinetmaking program.
The first-place winner in each Chapter is then judged at the national level to determine the top three national winners. These winners are announced at AWMAC’s National Convention.
Although the 2020 National Contest for Apprentices and Students in Cabinetmaking is cancelled due to the ever-evolving COVID-19 pandemic, we would like to take a moment and recognize the contest winners from the past three years.
Please contact your regional Chapter for more information on your Chapter’s plans for their 2021 contest.
