Funding: Apprenticeship Completion Grant – Financial information

3. Financial information

You may be eligible for Employment Insurance (EI) benefits while you attend technical training if you have worked enough hours and satisfy all the other eligibility requirements to establish an EI claim.

For more information, visit our EI section or phone our general enquiries line at 1-800-206-7218.

The Apprenticeship Completion Grant is not considered earnings from employment, so it does not affect your Employment Insurance (EI) benefits. You do not need to include these grants in your EI reports.

If you receive the Apprenticeship Completion Grant, you will receive a T4A slip in the mail in February of the year following the date of the payment. If you are a Quebec resident, you will receive a Relevé 1 with your T4A. The tax slip will be sent to the street address you provided on the Apprenticeship Completion Grant application form. If your street address has changed since receiving your grant cheque, please call Service Canada at 1-866-742-3644 (TTY: 1-866-909-9757) or visit your nearest Service Canada Centre.

If you do not receive a T4A tax information slip, if your slip is lost, destroyed, or stolen, or if you require a duplicate slip, call Service Canada at the number above and request a duplicate. You will need to provide your Social Insurance Number, full name, and complete mailing address.

Your grant can be affected if you owe support under a support order or agreement and the federal government has received an application to garnish federal government payments.

The Family Orders and Agreements Enforcement Assistance Act (FOAEAA) allows the federal government to garnish federal payments such as grants payable under apprenticeship grants programs, for the payment of support. If you have a family support debt, all or part of a federal payment payable to you can be redirected to pay your family support obligations.

A garnishment is the lawful seizing of money by a third party that is owed by the person who is in default of a debt, such as family support payments under a support order or agreement.

Please visit the Provincial and Territorial Family Maintenance Enforcement Programs website for more information.
