  • For information on WorkBC Apprentice Financial Supports to assist with your expenses while you attend in-school training click here

If you already have an employer sponsor with whom you are completing the on-the-job components, your Apprentice Training Supports application will be processed by the WorkBC centre in your training institution area. To identify the WorkBC centre that will handle your application click here.

If you do not have a sponsor, a WorkBC Case Manager can assess your needs and eligibility for services and help you to establish relationship with an employer.
