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 the required supporting documents indicated, contact your provincial or territorial apprenticeship issuing authority and submit your application on or before June 30 of the calendar year following the date you progressed in your apprenticeship program. Once you have received your supporting document, 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.
