Free Pre-Apprenticeship Training

Tuesday, April 18, 2017

The Ontario Government is providing the opportunity for 1,200 people to enroll in free Pre-Apprentice Training Programs. These 67 training programs are meant to help participants gain job skills and experience in the skilled trades. The Pre-Apprenticeship programs prepare people for high-demand jobs in trades such as:

  • Plumbing
  • Carpentry
  • Welding
  • Heavy Equipment Technicians

Some local programs are focused on recruiting people who are under-represented in the skilled trades, such as newcomers, women and Indigenous people.
