Second Career funding provides workers who have been laid-off with skills training to help them find employment in an alternate, high-demand occupation. (Some exceptions may apply – please call to discuss eligibility.) Second Career is a cost-sharing grant provided on the basis of need. Therefore, you may be asked to contribute a portion of the training/education costs.
Second Career Funding provides financial support to help with tuition, books, other instructional costs. This could include manuals or workbooks, transportation and a basic living allowance. Additional support may be available to accommodate the needs of people with disabilities, dependent care, costs of living away from home and academic upgrading. Up to $28,000 is available per application for training programs up to 52 weeks long.. All applications are required to be processed through an Employment Ontario site.
