Apprenticeship offers you an opportunity to learn a highly skilled trade in a variety of occupations through practical job experience and in-school training.
The apprenticeship system in Ontario is governed by two pieces of legislation: the Trades Qualification and Apprenticeship Act (TQAA) for regulated trades in the construction sector, and the Apprenticeship and Certification Act (ACA) for the industrial/ manufacturing, motive power and service sectors. Apprentices in trades regulated by the TQAA must have at least a Grade 10 Ontario Secondary School at or above the general level, or equivalent. Apprentices in trades regulated by the ACA must have at least an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) at or above the general or college level. For program-specific and new curriculum requirements refer to the individual program descriptions.
Apprentices in government funded and approved apprenticeship programs in Ontario are charged a fee for their in-school training, including day-release, night school or alternate delivery. This fee is payable to Humber before each level of training. The apprentices’ contribution to the cost of their classroom training varies depending on the duration of each level. Call Humber at 416.675.5000, and/or your local apprenticeship office for the current fee schedule.
Information and registration for apprenticeship programs are available through your local Apprenticeship Branch Office of the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities, or call 416.326.5800.
