Fast Track

Program Commitment

4 July - 29 July 2022

8:30am - 4:00pm

Tomorrow's Trades Fast Track is a 4 week pre-apprenticeship program designed to help support OYAP Graduates from the OCDSB and TDSB to access unionized construction trades in Ontario.


Participants can expect to visit several unionized construction trade training centres where they will have the opportunity to gain some additional experience, meet current apprentices, understand the current labour market and requirements to enter that particular union.  This process ensures that the participants have an opportunity to make informed decisions on the trade that is best suited to their interests, talents and future goals. 


Participants will also  meet with contractors, attend to active jobs sites and receive additional certifications.  During the program we will help the participants through their union application process (including support for intake exams)  and provide ongoing support as they make the connections to start their career.

Participants will receive:  


  • $225 per week over the course of the program

  • A Milwaukee tool kit valued at $450

  • PPE voucher valued at $300

  • Construction sector training and certifications

  • First Aid and CPR training and certification 

Students will be supported in applying to the unions in trades listed here.  


We are accepting applications for OCDSB students until 15 June 2022 at 4:00pm. Successful candidates will be notified by 22 June 2022 at 4:00pm.

Applications for TDSB students have now closed.
