Did you know the Canadian Government offers apprenticeship loans, apprenticeship grants and tax credits?
Apprentices can take advantage of interest-free Canada Apprentice Loans up to $4,000 per period of Red Seal technical training. Apply online or download a paper application at www.canada.ca/apprentice. In addition, apprentices can get up to $4,000 through the Apprenticeship Incentive Grant and the Apprenticeship Completion Grant. This information is also available at www.canada.ca/apprentice.
Employers can help their apprentices receive their employment insurance faster by issuing a record of employment using ‘Code J’ in ‘Block 16’ when they leave work. Visit www.canada.ca/apprentice for more information.
