    Canada (ESDC) are collaborating to obtain information from PWGSC
    & DCC construction and maintenance suppliers on their use of
    registered apprentices on their business activities and
    operations.  The aim of the questionnaire is to collect baseline
    data on use of registered apprentices, including the hiring and
    training practices of the industry to further understand the
    landscape.  The results of this questionnaire will be analyzed
    to support the development of an industry-informed approach to
    supporting the use of registered apprentices through federal
    construction and maintenance contracts, helping to create
    opportunities for Canadians.
    This RFI is a consultation document intended to solicit feedback
    from the Industry with respect to the matters described in this
    RFI.  This is not a bid solicitation. 
    This RFI will not result in the award of any contract. 
    Therefore, potential suppliers of any goods or services
    described in this RFI should not earmark facilities, nor
    allocate resources, as a result of any information contained in
    this RFI. Nor will this RFI result in the creation of any source
    list, therefore, whether or not any potential supplier responds
    to this RFI will not preclude that supplier from participating
    in any future procurement. Also, the procurement of any of the
    goods and services described in this RFI will not necessarily
    follow this RFI. This RFI is not considered as an authorization
    by PWGSC to undertake any work that would result in costs to
    Canada will not reimburse any respondent for expenses incurred
    in responding to this RFI.
    The questionnaire included in this RFI may be completed in one
    of the official languages of Canada, French or English.
