Second Career

Laid off?

Second Career is an Ontario government program that helps you train for a new job. Second Career provides financial support to help laid-off Ontarians participate in training for a new career. Counsellors at Employment Ontario assessment centres like Career Edge across the province can assess your eligibility and  help you take the first step.

Who can apply?

Laid-off workers – including those who have taken an interim job to make ends meet.

How long do you have to be out of work to apply?

If you were laid-off any time after January 1, 2005, you’re eligible to apply for Second Career.

What kind of support is available?

Second Career provides up to $28,000 to support tuition, travel, books, and other training-related costs. Additional funds may be available for people with disabilities, and for people who need help to pay for academic upgrading, the costs of living away from home, or child care.

Your assessment centre counsellor will want to know about:

  • Your work history
  • Your education and training
  • Your skills
  • Your interests

This will help you and your counsellor think about the kinds of careers that may be suitable for you.

Where can Second Career take you?

Second Career can help you train for a new career at a college or private career college anywhere in Ontario.

There may be high-demand careers in areas such as:

  • Natural and applied sciences and related areas
  • Health care
  • Dental health care
  • Computer and information systems
  • Construction, drafting, surveying and mapping
  • Business, finance, and administration
  • Food services and tourism
  • Education and government services
