In 1990 I graduated university with an Industrial Arts/Technology education degree. The high school industrial arts programs were phased out a few short years later; however, we have managed to hold onto the middle school level programs. These cover a broad spectrum of the industrial/home economic/technology courses. This does not qualify or compare in any way shape or form for training in the related fields, only as an introduction to the various groups.

It wasn’t until recently (2 or 3 years ago) that some of the industrial programs were reintroduced to the high schools and I know that a full reintroduction is in the plans. This is happening because some people in the upper education department of my province actually have their heads screwed on right and saw the growing need for trades people. So all is not lost every where.
