Ontario is investing an additional $55 million in three programs that support apprenticeship. This investment will help the next generation of skilled tradespeople access the training, equipment and facilities they need to get good jobs.
As part of a renewed Youth Jobs Strategy, new funding will be distributed to two apprenticeship programs:
In addition, colleges and other training organizations funded by Ontario will receive an additional $19 million over three years. This funding increase will support equipment upgrades and more lab time during in-school apprenticeship sessions.
Bolstering funding for apprenticeship programs will ensure more people have the skills needed to meet the evolving needs of the workforce and to build the modern infrastructure that will make Ontario's economy more competitive.
Supporting a modern apprenticeship system is part of the government's four-point economic plan for Ontario. This plan is building Ontario up by investing in people's talents and skills, building new public infrastructure like roads and transit, creating a dynamic, innovative environment where business thrives, and building a secure retirement savings plan.
