Second Career is an Ontario government program that provides financial support to help laid off workers participate in training at a college or private career college anywhere in Ontario.
It provides laid off workers with:
- Skills training to help them find jobs in high demand occupations in Ontario
- Financial support that may cover the costs of tuition, books, and living expenses
Second Career is a cost-sharing grant provided on the basis of need, so you may be asked to contribute what you can to your training or education.
Second Career provides up to $28,000 for:
- other instruction costs such as manuals or workbooks
- a basic living allowance
Additional support may be available to accommodate the needs of people with disabilities, dependent care, costs of living away from home and academic upgrading.
