Second Career provides laid-off workers with skills training to help them find employment in high-demand occupations. It 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. All applications are required to be processed through an Employment Ontario site.
