Our Field Consultant Katilyn presented virtually to folks from the Regina Open Door Society Inc. this morning. Great engagement from all those who attended!

Some popular topics of discussion included the financial supports and benefits available to apprentices. While attending technical training, apprentices may be eligible to receive Employment Insurance as well as the Apprenticeship Training Allowance. Apprentices can also apply for grants such as the Apprenticeship Incentive Grant, the Apprenticeship Incentive Grant for Women, and the Apprenticeship Completion Grant.
