Canada: Retraining programs

Many times, when a company in Canada goes out of business, the employees are eligible for a “retraining program” that is paid for by either the Federal or the Provincial Government. These are designed to get the person working again, but not always in their original kind of job.

The person is paid through the EI program, while the school costs are paid by the retraining program.

Those with young kids get free child care to enable them to attend the courses. Many women have moved into the construction trades through retraining programs.
