An apprenticeship is a great way to learn a skilled trade through a combination of on-the-job training and classroom study.

CLAC can help you make informed career decisions and navigate the apprenticeship system in your province. We can also help cover the cost of trade school fees through our apprenticeship bursary and tuition reimbursement programs, as well as through our apprenticeship awards.

Bursaries & trade school reimbursement

Because apprenticeships are governed provincially, our bursary and reimbursement program differs from province to province. Select your province to learn how to become an apprentice and how CLAC can help you.

Apprenticeship awards

Each year, we distribute six awards to apprentices in the construction trades who strive to excel and who are dedicated to becoming journeypersons in their trades.
