Second Career

Second Career provides laid-off workers with skills training and financial support to help them find jobs in high-demand occupations in Ontario.

Second Career is a Government of Ontario Program designed to allow individuals to gain new skills and financial support (up to $28,000). Qualifying criteria are:

  • Has been laid off and not working
  • Has been laid off, has a temporary employment job and underemployed.

If you are currently receiving, or has in the past received Employment Insurance (EI), you can still apply.

In the Second Career program you will work with our trained staff who will complete an assessment to see if you meet the criteria, help you decide if the program is a fit and complete your application if you are assessed as eligible.
