Apprenticeship Incentive Grant - FAQ - About the Program

Why does the Government of Canada offer the Apprenticeship Incentive Grant?

Apprenticeship grants are meant to:

  • increase access to apprenticeships in the Red Seal trades by helping apprentices cover expenses such as the purchase of tools and other materials required for learning on-the-job and travel expenses associated with classroom training;
  • encourage progression through the technical and on-the-job training requirements in the early years of their apprenticeship program, building momentum toward certification; and
  • promote interprovincial mobility by increasing the number of apprentices who remain in the Red Seal trades and get their Red Seal.
