Nova Scotia's education and apprenticeship system can help eligible participants receive training and experience they need to become a professional skilled tradesperson.  Registered apprentices who are referred to apprenticeship training may be eligible to receive Employment Insurance (EI) benefits or financial assistance to assist with additional costs related to their participation in the program.

If you are looking for more information regarding apprenticeship in Nova Scotia, visit Apprenticeship website.


Are you already an apprentice who is returning to school to complete your next scheduled training?

If your intention is to collect Employment Insurance benefits while attending training, you should visit your local Service Canada Centre or Service Canada Centre website to find out more information.

While attending training, will you have additional expenses for travel (more than 30 km from your home), care of children or living away from home?
