National Apprenticeship Survey (NAS) concordance keys and updated AG and CAL

July 23, 2020

New National Apprenticeship Survey (NAS) concordance file keys and updated data files for the Apprenticeship Grants (AG) and Canada Apprenticeship Loan (CAL) are now available.

The Apprenticeship Grants (AG) dataset contains information on the Apprenticeship Incentive Grant (AIG) and the Apprenticeship Completion Grant (ACG) applications, covering the period from April 1, 2007 to November 27, 2018.

The CAL data contains information only on approved CAL disbursements, from January 2, 2015 to December 31, 2018. The data includes one disbursement per period of technical training for each person. Each person can receive a separate loan for up to five training periods. As a result, a person can have up to five records in this dataset.

The AG and CAL data can be directly linked to each other, and to the Registered Apprenticeship Information System (RAIS) as well as linked to National Apprenticeship Survey (NAS) concordance file keys.

As specified by the MRC, access is granted separately to each of the following products: NAS; AG; CAL; and RAIS. Researchers must request access to each separate data product.

For any questions related to accessing this data, please contact your local Research Data Centre.
