Funding: Apprenticeship Completion Grant – Developing your application

4. Developing your application

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 in alphabetical order. Only a few provinces are required to issue documents in both official languages.

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 documents, 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.

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

For each province or territory:

As an apprentice, you are required to provide a document of proof of registration by the issuing authority for that province or territory. You also need to provide a document that show proof of your journeyperson certification and the document for the date used to determine your journeyperson certification in a designated Red Seal trade on or after January 1, 2009. These 3 elements required to administer the grant may be combined or in separate documents, as determined by the issuing province or territory.
