This article summarizes the results of a recent Statistics Canada study that examined completion and discontinuation rates of registered apprentices over a period of 11 years - from 1995 to 2005 - using a longitudinal cohort created from the Registered Apprenticeship Information System (RAIS). The article examines the relationship between the duration of an apprenticeship program and completion and discontinuation rates, which are discussed in relation to the nominal duration of programs, the median time needed for completion, as well as time spent in the program for discontinuers.
