More about the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP)


The goals of OYAP are:

  • To provide students with the opportunity to start training in a skilled trade, at the actual apprenticeship level,  while completing the requirements for an Ontario Secondary School Diploma;
  • To enable students to make the school to work transition by direct entry into apprenticeship training;
  • To provide employers with the opportunity to train the skilled workers they require;
  • To provide a viable solution to address the problem of skilled tradespeople shortages in Ontario in general, and specifically the lack of young people joining the trades.
