Current Grant Opportunities


This program is considered a Red Seal trade (see ). Apprenticeship grants are designed to make a career in the trades an attractive choice and encourage more apprentices to complete their training. Eligible apprentices could receive up to $4,000, which can be used to pay for tuition, travel, tools, or other expenses.


As per the Service Canada website, registered apprentices who have successfully finished their first or second year/level (or equivalent) in one of the Red Seal trades can apply for the Apprenticeship Incentive Grant (AIG), which is a taxable cash grant of $1,000 per year/level up to a maximum of $2,000. And, registered apprentices who have completed their training and become a certified journeyperson in a designated Red Seal trade and who obtain either the Red Seal endorsement or a provincial or territorial Certificate of Qualification can apply for the Apprenticeship Completion Grant (ACG), which is a taxable cash grant of $2,000.

    It was a great learning experience, the program provided a good solid understanding of the materials that prepared one to apply to the working world without much difficulty. It also helps in building a foundation of knowledge to further pursue additional education if one wishes to. The college's environment is very nurturing, lots of room for the growing of friendships, learning activities, and the equipment is clean, and up to date. Looking back of how fast time has been travelling and that such a positive learning experience that I would hardly forget.
