Second Career

If you were laid off after January 1, 2005, you may qualify for skills training for an in demand occupation in Ontario.

Eligible training helps Second Career participants move up to better jobs than they could get without the training.

What are the possible opportunities?

Second Career provides up to $28,000 for tuition, books, transportation and 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. Second Career is a cost-sharing grant provided on the basis of need, so you may be asked to contribute to your training or education.

Am I eligible?

  • You are choosing to retrain in a job that is in demand
  • You had a layoff since January 1, 2005
  • You are unemployed, or you took an interim lower skill job with less pay

Several additional factors are considered as part of the qualification for Second Career. If you think you meet the basic eligibility criteria, we encourage you to contact the Second Career Coordinator to discuss your personal situation.

  • "I have never met anyone not only so knowledgeable about government programs but able to fully reduce all of the information so I could easily understand it. Mike was so very helpful with all of the paperwork every step of the way. I could go on as to how helpful Mike was, but this would become a letter of multiple pages." - A.G.

  • "During my meetings to apply for Second Career, I found Mike to be thorough and very knowledgeable. He took the time to explain things and answer my questions with patience. I was never rushed. He gave me the utmost attention. Overall my experience from the beginning to the end was very positive!" - A.P.
