The Co-Op Diploma Apprenticeship Program is one of several initiatives implemented by the Government of Ontario to increase access to the skilled trades.

The program enables individuals to train as apprentices in a specific trade while obtaining an associated college diploma. This initiative adds flexibility to the apprenticeship system, responds to employer needs and attracts younger people to the skilled trades.
