Funding: Apprenticeship Completion Grant – Overview

1. Overview

The Apprenticeship Completion Grant (ACG) is a one-time taxable cash grant of $2,000 lifetime maximum per person available to registered apprentices who have successfully completed their apprenticeship training and obtained their journeyperson certification in a designated Red Seal trade on or after January 1, 2009.

The 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.
