This program is considered a Red Seal trade (see www.red-seal.ca - opens a new window). Apprenticeship grants are designed to make a career in the trades an attractive choice and to encourage more apprentices to complete their training. Eligible apprentices may 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. Registered apprentices who complete their training, 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.
