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 Manesa Barnes; I'm an international student from Jamaica. Coming to a new country and adapting to the new lifestyle was different at first but as I meet friends along the way and open up more both in my language and those in my surroundings, I see myself improving since I started Evergreen College. I'm no long the shy person; thanks to Evergreen College. I have successfully completed the ECA program and now I'm currently enrolled in the community service program (CSW). I feel like I have accomplish a lot by doing assignments and group work. The ECA class was really great, because I appreciate the small classes because I feel that it enhanced my learning skills and encourage me to have one on one conversation with my professor and classmates. My perspective of the class was that it had a friendly environment that made me feel welcome. I enjoyed my field placement which I did for four months. Overtime as I got more Intune in what I was doing, the children became my priority. My professor prepare me for my field placement very well, so when I went out in the field I knew what I was doing because I knew how to apply what I've learned. While I was in the ECA class, I got the opportunity to visit the Scott Mission. By being involve in donating items such as clothing, can foods and money that was put together from the bake sale by the ECA class and professor.
