Applications for the federal government's Apprenticeship Incentive Grant are now being accepted.

The $1,000 grant is available to registered apprentices who have completed their first or second year in a Red Seal trade program, on or after January 1, 2007.

Up to 100,000 apprentices in Canada each year will be eligible to receive this taxable cash grant to cover the costs of tuition, travel and tools.
