Financing your Education
Second Career Ontario
Second Career is a Government program to offer financial assistance for laid-off unemployed workers for which skills training is the most appropriate intervention to transition them into high-skill, demand occupations in the local labour market. If you have been recently laid-off, an active EI claimant, EI Reachback or non-EI eligible you could be eligible for Government Funding through the Second Career Ontario Program. Effective July 13, 2021, the Ontario government has made changes to the Second Career program to better help laid-off workers pay for tuition and living expenses if they retrain for new careers. If you were laid off in one of the sectors most impacted by COVID-19 since March 1, 2020, you may benefit from these changes. The Second Career Program will offer funding for programs of less than 52 weeks duration so that applicants can re-enter the job market in the shortest possible time. The program may offer up to a maximum of $28,000 for tuition, books and equipment, transportation and living expenses if you are eligible. You can join a Program at Peel College of Professional Studies through the Second Career Program.
