Length of time to process an AIG application

Once we have received your complete application and all required supporting documents and you are deemed eligible, you can expect the grant payment to be processed in 28 calendar days.

For Quebec apprentices registered with the Commission de la Construction du Québec (CCQ), the terms "level" and "period" each have a different meaning.

Level: A "level" is based on the renewal of the Certificate of Apprenticeship Competency issued by the CCQ. For the purpose of the AIG, the term "level" is found on the "Attestation de réussite" letter issued by the CCQ. This letter shows that the apprentice has fulfilled the working and training requirements to renew the Certificate of Apprenticeship Competency and is to be used to establish eligibility for the AIG.

Period: The term "period" refers to salary of apprentices as determined by a percentage of the journeyperson salary, established by collective agreements in the construction industry. For purposes of the AIG, the term "period" cannot be used to establish eligibility for the grant. For more information on salary-related matters, call CCQ customer services at 1-888-842-8282.
