Ontario is Providing Free Training for Auto Technicians

Across Ontario, 300,000 jobs continue to go unfilled every day, including many in the auto sector, costing the province billions in lost productivity.

That is why this government is investing more than $4.7 million to support two innovative projects designed to help 360 people land good-paying jobs in Ontario’s thriving automotive manufacturing sector.

These projects will provide participants with the necessary skills to prepare for rewarding careers in machine operation, assembly, quality control, and logistics.

Participants will have the chance to transition into full-time employment after completing the training and a three-month-long paid work placement with an Automotive Parts Manufacturers’ Association (APMA) employer.

Automotive Industries Association of Canada (AIA) Training will be offered at Conestoga College (Guelph Campus), Fanshawe College (London Campus) and St. Lawrence College (Cornwall Campus). 

For more information on the APMA project, visit APMA.ca/DEI.

Those interested in the AIA project can get more information at ev-training.ca.  

These programs will not only provide people with opportunities for good-paying jobs and rewarding careers, but they’ll also help support our thriving auto industry.

We’re revitalizing our province’s auto sector, attracting billions of dollars in new investments for electric vehicle and battery production and ensuring the cars of the future are built right here in Ontario, by Ontario workers.
