Second Career

The Second Career Program is a government program designed to help unemployed or underemployed Ontarians get the skills and training they need to find jobs in high-demand occupations.
 
Best of all, Second Career funds are not a loan, so you never have to pay it back!
 

What is Second Career?

 
Second Career helps people get the training or education they need to get a good job. You may be eligible for financial help up to $28,000 to cover your education expenses, including:
 
  • Tuition (up to $10,000 – which will be deducted from the full financial help)
     
  • Books
  • Living expenses
     
  • Help caring for dependents
     
  • Travel
     
  • Transportation
     
  • Disability supports
     
  • Other living and training costs
 

Am I eligible to receive a Second Career subsidy?

 
If you are working part time (less than 20 hrs per week), you may still be eligible to apply for free funding from the government of Ontario.
If you are on E.I., you may be eligible to apply for free funding from the government of Ontario to go back to school and train for another career.
If you were on E.I. in the last three years and your benefits have expired, you may be eligible to apply for free funding from the government of Ontario.
 
If you were on maternity leave and for some satisfactory reason you were not able to return to your job, you may be eligible to apply for free government funding from the Government of Ontario.

Grad Testimonial

My name is Emanuele and I work as a Social Worker aid in Italy helping clients with mental illness carry out activities of daily living. I decided to enroll in the Personal Support Worker program at Evergreen College in order to gain further knowledge and experience in the health care field geared towards the care and support of people that are in need of assistance with everyday life tasks. For a person who loves helping others, whether young or old, I've found the Personal Support Worker program to be very rewarding in the sense that it has taught me the necessary skills required for the proper care of those in need of assistance due to a physical or mental disability. I had the opportunity to volunteer at various Long-term care facilities in the GTA and my Italian background and knowledge of the language became a great asset as the majority of the residents were of Italian descent. As the aging population in Canada increases, the demand for Personal Support Workers is also increasing, for this reason, I highly recommend the PSW program at Evergreen College to whoever wishes to start or continue their education in this field.
