This program is funded by the Government of Ontario.

Apprenticeship programs are appropriate for anyone who wishes to improve his or her professional qualifications profile and who is sponsored by an employer or can find an employer that is willing to provide sponsorship.

Most of the training (80 to 90%) is provided in a workplace where the apprentice has the opportunity to master skills related to his or her trade under the supervision of qualified personnel. The theoretical component of the training is generally provided by a community college in classrooms or through distance education.

A potential employer must contact a counselor in a MTCU apprenticeship office to register an apprentice. To obtain a list of counselors in your region, please visit, and to obtain general information, please refer to the Ministry website at
