Second Career

Kettle and Stony Point First Nation | Lambton County | Ontario | Canada



  1. Have you been laid off from a job in Ontario? Since January 1, 2005?
  2. Currently are you either unemployed or working fewer than 20 hours per week?
  3. Are you interested in training for a new career in Ontario?


The Second Career strategy launched by the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities pays for the training or education that Ontarians require to get a better job. It provides financial help up to $28,000 or more in some cases to pay for:

  • Tuition
  • Living Expenses
  • Help caring for dependents
  • Travel
  • Transportation
  • Disability supports
  • Other living and training costs
  • Books

Those who qualify may have some or all of these costs covered within the Second Career Strategy. In order to find out if you qualify for Second Career or any other government funding, all candidates must visit an Employment Ontario assessment centre for an assessment interview.
