The feds bring in programs such as the shipbuilding plan, or new regulations.
The provinces are responsible for the training and apprenticeship plans.
The two don't seem to match up because of, dare I say, bureaucratic bungling, funding, getting programs into the trade schools and other random incompetent souls involved. Then it becomes a Irving tale of woe that they have to bring in TFW to do work because there is no one capable of doing it. This is interior work and there is a very capable company in Dartmouth who does this. Maybe they aren't big enough....but....but...Irving managed to build 9 ship for the CG with no TFW. Go figure.
I have no idea of the specifics for the US, and only a fuzzy understanding of here in Canada.
