Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost? There is no cost to take these programs. We are funded by Employment Ontario. However, if you wish your own workbook, there may be a materials fee. You may be able to receive travel or childcare subsidies to help you attend.
When will I have to attend? This is up to you. We work with you to design a program that suits you. However, we suggest at least 10 hours per week spent on building your skills, either at our learning centre or elsewhere, for you to show reasonable progress towards your goal.
How long will it take? This is determined by the occupation you are interested in, where your skills are now and how much time per week you can give to your skill building. When you first come in, we assess your skills and needs. We then work with you to design a program, which includes timeframes. Most of our clients are finished in a few months, but it could be shorter or longer depending on your needs.
