Apprenticeship is learning by doing. It offers hands-on training that provides access to jobs that demand skills, judgment and creativity.

EARN while you learn

While you are gaining skills and knowledge as an Apprentice you are paid, and your wages will increase with your increased level of skills.

For the most part apprenticeship training occurs right in the workplace by employers who provide training to standards of skill and safety set by the specific industry. Some training involves classroom instruction on theory, and may be given at a local community college or provided by another approved training organization.

Am I ready to start an apprenticeship?

  • I have graduated High School (certain trades require Grade 10 only)
  • I enjoy working hands-on (learning by doing)
  • I have experience working in a demanding environment
  • I am ready for a long term commitment (up to 4 years)

JobStart can make the connection for you.

Jobs for apprentices are seldom advertised. Employers often rely on word of mouth to attract applicants. People who want to become apprentices usually apply directly to an employer, union, or local apprenticing committee and that's where JobStart can help!

If you are 16 years or older, out of school and out of work JobStart can help you decide if apprenticeship is right for you. Certain individuals may qualify for an Apprenticeship Scholarship as well as Signing Bonuses may be available to employers who hire new apprentices - call or come in to see if you are eligible.
