Comments on Funding:
Funding is up to $17,000 to eligible employers when apprentices meet training and certification milestones, including:
Eligible sponsors will be provided with an email notification from the ministry when apprentices meet AI program milestones prior to being issued payment;
In the initial email notification, eligible sponsors identified in the EOIS-APPR system will be provided with a web-link to complete and submit an electronic application through a secure domain. This will be a one-time application where eligible sponsors will provide their trade, business and banking information once. In exceptional circumstances, a paper application can be made available through the local apprenticeship office.
“EOIS-APPR” is the Employment Ontario Information System (EOIS) responsible for supporting the administration of apprenticeship in Ontario.
