Funding: Apprenticeship Incentive Grant – Overview
The Apprenticeship Incentive Grant (AIG) is a taxable cash grant of $1,000 per year or level, up to two levels, for a lifetime maximum amount of $2,000 per person, available to registered apprentices once they have successfully finished their first or second year/level (or equivalent) of an apprenticeship program in one of the designated Red Seal trade.
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.
