Better Jobs Ontario

What is Better Jobs Ontario?

Better Jobs Ontario (formerly Second Career) is an initiative offered by the Ontario government. It provides eligible laid-off workers with financial support for skills training to help you find jobs in high-demand occupations in Ontario.

It's a cost-sharing grant provided on the basis of need; you may be required to financially contribute to your training or education.

Better Jobs Ontario may cover such costs as tuition, textbooks, transportation and basic living allowance. Additional support may be available to accommodate the needs of individuals with disabilities, dependent care, costs of living away from home and Academic Upgrading or ESL.

How to apply?

The Better Jobs Ontario initiative requires two separate applications:

  1. A FUNDING application completed with an Employment Consultant.
  2. A COLLEGE application.
