Funded by the Government of Canada's Apprenticeship Service

The CLAC Apprenticeship Support Program (CASP) is not taking on new employer applicants.

This initiative, supporting Canadian employers in hiring new first-year apprentices has exhausted all budgeted funds!

For new applicants, please contact us at and we can refer you to another program intermediary.

If you already have an assigned agreement you still will receive the funds as long as you have all documents submitted by March 31st, 2024. Please contact your CASP contact for more information.

What have we accomplished together since our launch? 
Over 2,000 small-and-medium-sized employers signed up from across Canada!
Over 1,500 new first-year apprentices hired, registered and financially supported!
60% of new apprentices self-identify as belonging to an under-represented demographic

We extend our sincere gratitude to all participating employers who took advantage of this program to invest in the future of skilled trades.

We are still here . . .

CASP will continue to champion apprentices and employers throughout their professional journeys. We understand the importance of nurturing talent and fostering growth in the workforce. With our dedicated team and comprehensive resources, we are committed to providing unparalleled support to apprentices as they navigate their careers and to empowering employers to cultivate thriving work environments.
