Pre-Apprenticeship Training Program

Pre-Apprenticeship Training Program Guidelines and Proposal Application

The Pre-Apprenticeship Training Program Call for Proposals and Application Guide and associated templates are attached for your consideration.

The Pre-Apprenticeship Training Program funds projects that provide people from underrepresented groups with technical and employability training needed to enter an apprenticeship. It helps people who are interested in an apprenticeship but lack the skills and experience to gain employment as apprentices.

This initiative is designed to support potential apprentices who may need job readiness skills and trade readiness experience to gain employment as apprentices.

Proponents are invited to submit proposals for projects that focus on youth (including youth at risk and in conflict with the law), unemployed workers, women, Indigenous peoples, persons with disabilities and newcomers to Canada, or other groups traditionally under-represented in apprenticeship programs. Projects are chosen through an annual Call for Proposals process and funded for the development and delivery of pre-apprenticeship training projects across Ontario.

Interested proponents are invited to submit proposals for the development and delivery of pre-apprenticeship training projects across Ontario. Each proponent can submit a maximum of three (3) proposals.
