If you would like to further explore your options or further discuss this program or any of our other programs, give one of our consultants a call or setup a meeting. Our consultants are here to help you gain access to the information, assistance or training that you need.
Second Career: 

The objective of Second Career is to support laid off, unemployed individuals who require skills training to assist them to find employment in high-demand occupations in Ontario. Second Career provides financial assistance, based on individual need, to help people with some of the costs associated with a long-term training plan, including the cost of tuition and books.

  • Workers laid off as far back as January 1, 2005
  • Laid-off workers who have taken an interim job to make ends meet
  • Short-term training options for laid-off workers who are not eligible for Employment Insurance
  • Potential additional financial assistance to cover expenses for the cost of academic upgrading, living away from home while training, and dependent care
