Hiring a youth apprentice makes good business sense. The Provincial and Federal governments provide income tax credits for employers of apprentices registered in Industry Training Authority (ITA) apprenticeship programs.
As an employer sponsor you can:
Claim 10% of eligible apprentice wages per year for Red Seal trades
Get $1.47* back for every $1 you invest in apprenticeship training
Claim 20% of eligible apprentice wages per year for non-Red Seal trades
