Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Programs (OYAP)

The Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP) offers full-time secondary school students the opportunity to train as apprentices while enrolled in school through Cooperative Education placements. In the first year of the program (grade 11), the student is exploring skilled trades. The student is usually a registered apprentice in the second year (grade 12).

OYAP allows students to complete their Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) and to gain apprenticeship training, leading to a Certificate of Qualification with journeyperson status in a skilled trade. An apprenticeship is a hands-on program for people who want to work in a skilled trade and who enjoy learning by doing. There are over 150 designated trades in Ontario to choose from that include automotive, construction, manufacturing, and service industries.
