What Second Career is All About
Second Career is a financial assistance program managed by the provincial government that helps laid-off workers find other opportunities, especially in industries and fields that they are not originally familiar with. Simply put, Second Career enables the worker to undergo training and education—with costs all covered by the government—in order to earn more qualifications for more jobs.
The program allows applicants to qualify for up to $28,000, or enough to pay for tuition plus other educational expenses such as books and training costs. Second Career also covers for the applicant’s living expenses, support for dependents, travel, transportation, disability supports, childcare and so on. More than funding, the program aims to give workers new directions in life—a fresh start on a different and exciting field of work.
