Canada Apprenticeship Grants

As an apprentice in a Red Seal trade, you get to earn while you learn, but a little extra money can always help.

The Government of Canada provides up to $4,000 in federal apprenticeship grants to help you progress in or complete your apprenticeship training.

Apprenticeship Incentive Grant (AIG)

The Apprenticeship Incentive Grant (AIG) is a taxable cash grant of $1,000 per year or per level, up to a maximum amount of $2,000 per person.

To be eligible for the AIG, you must:

  • be a Canadian citizen, permanent resident, or protected person;
  • not be a high school student;
  • have the required AIG supporting documents;
  • be registered with your provincial/territorial apprenticeship authority as an apprentice in a designated Red Seal trade; and
  • provide proof that you have successfully completed either the 1st and/or 2nd year or level (or equivalent) in a designated Red Seal trade.

The deadline to apply is June 30 of the year after you complete the first and/or second year or level.

Apprenticeship Completion Grant (ACG)
