The Ministry of Labour, Immigration, Training and Skills Development provides information and services to help you determine if you qualify for an apprenticeship program and to apply to be an apprentice.

If your application is approved, the Ministry of Labour, Immigration, Training and Skills Development will contact you and your employer to sign a Registered Training Agreement (RTA).

If you become an apprentice in a compulsory trade, your name will automatically appear on the Skilled Trades Ontario Public Register. Apprentices do not pay any fees to Skilled Trades Ontario.

Your local apprenticeship office can help with any questions about your RTA, on-the-job hours, training, and sponsor.
