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

Hi, I am Sehnaz from Turkey. I came to Canada as an international student. I study Community Service Worker at Evergreen College. The most important reason of my choosing Toronto is it's being a metropolitan as well as a safe city. The counseling services of the college were quite fast and professional and that was the biggest factor that comes forward during my applications. The campus is located in a very safe and convenient. All of the educators and the staff in the college are so kind, helpful and friendly. You will find yourself in such a warm place that will help you to overcome homesickness. I advise Evergreen College to anyone who wants to study abroad.
