Education and Training Incentive

The Education and Training Incentive (ETI) provides financial help to adult learners with low incomes who are enrolled in an approved program such as adult basic education, workforce development programs or skills training.

The ETI will be available starting July 1, 2022.


1. Eligibility

Adult learners with low incomes may be eligible for the ETI if:

Post-secondary institutions and Career Service Suppliers will determine your ongoing ETI eligibility and will work with you to support your success.

Maintaining Eligibility

To remain eligible for the ETI, you must:

  • maintain an attendance rate of at least 90 per cent;
  • make satisfactory progress in your studies; and
  • continue to be registered in your program.

ETI funding will end if you are unable to attend your training program for more than three consecutive weeks (21 calendar days).

Your benefits may change or be discontinued if eligibility requirements are not met or if your personal circumstances change. Be sure to inform your ETI coordinator immediately if there are any changes to your personal situation.

Disability Accommodations

Adult learners must attend programming full-time. However, an adult learner may be approved for the ETI if a disability accommodation is required and results in an extended program plan. Training centres will determine the eligibility for an extended program plan. Please reach out to your training centre for further information.


2. Benefits

The ETI is provided as a monthly benefit to adult learners in addition to their other income assistance benefits:

  • single adults without children or dependents will receive $50 per month.
  • families with one child will receive $100 per month.
  • families with two or more children will receive $200 per month.

Along with financial support, adult learners receiving the ETI will also have access to employment supports from their post-secondary institutions and the Ministry of Immigration and Career Training, as well as other individualized supports from the Ministry of Social Services.

Other income assistance benefits are available through the SIS and SAID programs.


3. How To Apply

To access the ETI, you must:

  • enroll in an approved education program with a post-secondary institution or career service supplier; and
  • apply for ETI through either the SIS or SAID application process. An ETI coordinator or Career Service Supplier Program Coordinator can help you with your application.

You will need to provide to your ETI Coordinator or Career Service Supplier Program Coordinator with:

  • your Ministry of Social Services Client Identification Number; and
  • your Ministry of Social Services Case Number.

These numbers are found on letters or emails you receive from the Ministry of Social Services.
