Start Your Journey Today
We can help you find out which skilled trades require registration and certification in Ontario; and what your first step to employment in a skilled trade will be.
If you are in high school, if you want to study at a community college while training towards an apprenticeship, or if you’re already in the workforce and want to develop your skills for an apprenticeship, we can help you get started. Ask about the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program for high-school students; the Co-op Diploma Apprenticeship Program for people who are college-bound; and the Pre-Apprenticeship Training Program for those who are already working and want to strengthen their skills to become an apprentice.
We can help you:
- Use the many services that are available to find an employer who wants to hire and train apprentices
- Learn about where you can get financial assistance to pay for your apprenticeship training and the tools you will need
- Participate in programs provided by the federal government.
