Welcome to the Skilled Trades Ontario Portal


The Skilled Trades Ontario Portal provides individuals with secure access to online services. As the Government of Ontario hosts the Skilled Trades Ontario Portal, creating a My Ontario Account is required to access services online. Additional online services are being released in phases, with the goal of building a one-window digital channel for all skilled trades and apprenticeship clients by 2025.
