As an organization, we are committed to supporting our permanent employees by reimbursing them up to $2000 towards the apprenticeship program.

Employees who enroll in the apprenticeship program will become a part of Compass ELC’s apprenticeship network and will be invited to join a Facebook group to engage with current and former apprenticeship students. This group acts as a platform for students to connect and provide support, seek advice, and share textbooks.

Flexible learning options are available, allowing you to complete the coursework portion of the apprenticeship by taking classes online or at night.

Upon completion of your apprenticeship, you will be eligible to receive the $2000 Apprenticeship Completion Bonus for non-Red Seal trades from the Ministry of Labour, Training, and Skills Development.
