Did You Know?

You can start an apprenticeship while still in high school!

OYAP - Jump Start Your Career!


The Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program allows students to get an early start on an apprenticeship in a skilled trade.  Students have the opportunity to work towards their OSSD, while working with an employer in a skilled trade area through a specialized co-op program.  Students can participate in OYAP in three different ways:

  1. OYAP/Co-op - students get the opportunity to complete their co-op in any of the skilled trade areas.  This is an excellent opportunity to 'test' out a trade to see if it's right for you!
  2. Registered OYAP/Co-op - students will continue their co-op placement in a skilled trade area AND may also be registered as an apprentice with the Ministry of Training Colleges and Universities (Apprenticeship Branch).  The hours completed at co-op will count towards the completion of your apprenticeship program.
  3. Specialized Level 1 OYAP/Co-op - students may be registered apprentices with their co-op employers and will also have the opportunity to complete the 1st level of the 'in-school' apprenticeship training.  Programs currently being offered include:
