Kerry and Jordan discuss ICBA’s important webinar on the federal government’s new apprenticeship grant program for companies (and remember Her Majesty the Queen).
The federal government is now offering grants of up to $10,000 to companies who hire Red Seal Level 1 trades apprentices. The program is designed to incentivize companies like yours to open up spaces for apprentices. If you are looking to hire any new Level 1 apprentices within the next 12 months, you should apply for this incentive. Step 1 is to attend this free ICBA webinar to learn about eligibility details and processes for this program. The one-hour session is set for Tuesday, September 13, from 10 – 11AM Pacific.
Register (for free!) at www.icba.ca/apprenticegrants.
Join us for a virtual session where you will learn about the Government of Canada’s Canadian Apprenticeship Service (CAS). Employers with less than 500 paid employees are eligible for $5,000 or $10,000 grants to offset the costs of hiring and training first year apprentices in 39 Red Seal Trades. The program will provide a range of supports, in addition to the grant, to the expert trainers of Canada’s future skilled trades workforce.
In this webinar, you will learn more about the application process and how to access funding.
