CICan is providing financial incentives to small and medium-sized enterprises in construction and manufacturing to help them hire apprentices.

Eligible employers can receive $10,000 to hire an equity-deserving first-year apprentice in one of 39 Red Seal construction and manufacturing trades, or $5,000 to hire an apprentice that is not part of an equity-deserving group. ​

​Eligible equity-deserving groups for this program include women, Indigenous people, newcomers, persons with disabilities, racialized communities including Black Canadians, and 2ELGBTQI+.

Help us connect with employers and make an impact in the trades.​

Employers can use the incentive in any way they see fit. That could include salaries and training costs, purchasing equipment, or a hiring bonus for new apprentices.​

We also help employers locate, hire, onboard, and retain new apprentices. Employers can receive the incentive for a maximum of two apprentices per fiscal year.​
