Second Career is a provincial government program under the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities that provides laid-off workers with
- skills training to help them find jobs in high-demand occupations in Ontario
- financial support
Pilot training is an acceptable second career and you can receive partial funding to help defray the costs of the flight training. Second Career is a cost-sharing grant provided on the basis of need, so you may be asked to contribute what you can to your training or education.
Second Career provides up to $28,000 for
- tuition - including flight training fees
- other instruction costs such as manuals or workbooks
- a basic living allowance
There are caps on the funding for flight training (a maximum of $14 per hour) but every bit helps.
