The Provincial Training Allowance is winding down and will be replaced by a new Education and Training Incentive.
The Education and Training Incentive (ETI) will be introduced on July 1, 2022. This new incentive provides financial help to adult learners with low incomes who are participating in an approved adult basic education, workforce development or skills training program on their path to employment.
To learn more about the ETI, please contact your training centre or visit Education and Training Incentive.
Provincial Training Allowance
If you are an existing Provincial Training Allowance (PTA) recipient, there are no changes to your benefits while you complete your current course. If you will require income support in the fall, you will need to apply for the Education and Training Incentive.
The PTA provides income assistance to low-income adult students enrolled in full-time Adult Basic Education, workforce development or skills training programs. Individuals are only eligible to apply for PTA after being accepted in an approved training program.
PTA Coordinators at your training centre are available to assist you in completing your PTA Application and to help you update your personal information. PTA Coordinators will ensure that you have included all the necessary information in your application so that you receive your allowance in a timely manner. Additional support and information can be found on the following topics:
The amount of financial assistance you receive depends on your specific situation. For more information, please see the Provincial Training Allowance Learner Handbook.

Please remember that it is an offence under the Criminal Code of Canada to knowingly give false or misleading information on your application or other forms. All information you provide is subject to verification and audit.
For programs that start after July 1, 2022 or for the 2022-23 academic year:
The PTA application will not be available for any programs starting anytime after July 1st, 2022. This includes all approved adult education, workforce development or short-term skills training programs offered by post-secondary institutions and Career Service Suppliers.
After July 1, 2022, learners requiring financial assistance to attend training will need to apply for the new ETI.
For programs that started before July 1, 2022:
If you are in a program that began before July 1 and you need financial assistance, you must apply for PTA prior to July 31, 2022. If you are applying after August 1, you will need to apply for the new ETI.
