How the AIG affects Employment Insurance benefits

You may receive Employment Insurance (EI) benefits as an apprentice if you:

  • have worked between 420 and 700 hours; and
  • meet all of the eligibility requirements to make a claim.

The Apprenticeship Incentive Grant is not considered earnings from employment. It does not affect your EI benefits. You do not need to include these grants in your EI reports.

Tax information

The Apprenticeship Incentive Grant is taxable.

You will get a T4A slip in the mail the year after you receive payment. Quebec residents get a Relevé 1 tax slip.

Contact Apprenticeship Grants to:

  • update your contact information
  • ask for your T4A/Relevé 1 if you don’t have it in time to file your taxes

How family support debts affect your grant

Under the Family Orders and Agreements Enforcement Assistance Act (FOAEAA), we can redirect all or part of your grant money to a third party if you owe family support payments.
