Is Second Career right for me?

You can apply to Second Career if you:

  • are laid off or have been laid off since January 2005
  • are unemployed or working an interim job
  • are choosing to retrain for a career that is in demand

Second Career provides help to laid-off workers in need who will benefit most from training to find work. Several factors are considered when figuring out who will receive funding. We will help applicants based on their:

  • Active job search
  • Length of unemployment
  • Education background
  • Work history
  • Labour market prospects
  • Training request
  • Experience and occupational skills
