Apprenticeship Completion Grant - Required Supporting Documents

To complete your Apprenticeship Completion Grant application, you are required to submit supporting documents. You will find below a list of the required supporting documents for each province and territory.

If you do not have one or both required supporting documents as indicated, please contact your provincial or territorial apprenticeship authority and submit your application on or before June 30th of the calendar year following the date you completed your apprenticeship program and became certified in your trade. Once you have received your supporting document, you must mail your documents to an Apprenticeship Grant processing centre or deliver them to a Service Canada Centre near you. Service Canada will honour the date of your online application or the postmark date on your mailed application.

The following lists the supporting documents issued by each province and territory. Service Canada is not authorized to rename documents listed in the table. Only a few provinces are required to issue documents in both official languages.

To consult the list, click on the province or territory in which you completed your apprenticeship.
