Second Career Strategy at Northern College

Thinking of returning to school, but not sure how to pay for it? Second Career may be an option for you.

What is Second Career?

Second Career is a Government of Ontario initiative to help people who are unemployed, or laid off, update their skills and training to get a better job. If you qualify, you could be eligible for up to $28,000. These Second Career funds would go towards your tuition, book fees and other costs related to your chosen program such as First Aid Training. The funds can also go toward your transportation and living expenses. Have a family to support? Additional funds are also available for child care, disability accommodations, living away from home, and in some cases, academic upgrading.

What can Northern College offer me?

At Northern College we are dedicated to the success and growth of our Northern communities. Currently we have 44 regular programs that are funded by Second Career within areas of Business and Office Administration, Engineering Technicians and Trades, Health Sciences and Emergency Services, Community Services, Law and Justice, and Veterinary Sciences.
