- 2The only program affected by the rollout of the Achievement Incentive is the ministry’s Employer Completion Bonus (ECB). Due to overlapping periods of eligibility, employers who already received a $1,000 ECB payment for an apprentice will not be eligible for a $1,000 Achievement Incentive payment for the same apprentice achieving the highest level of certification for the same trade.
