Other student grants
Grants, bursaries and scholarships help you pay for your post-secondary education by giving you money that does not need to be paid back. They can be offered through governments, schools or private organizations.
Apprenticeship grants for on-the-job training
If you have completed your first or second year of an apprenticeship program in a Red Seal trade and you qualify, you could get an Apprenticeship Incentive Grant (AIG). Although you don’t have to pay this grant back, you will have to pay tax on it. Check the AIG deadline to apply.
If you have completed your Red Seal certificate or your provincial or territorial Certificate of Qualification, you may still be able to get a $2,000 Apprenticeship Completion Grant (ACG). Check the ACG deadline to apply.
