Ontario Newcomer Trades
Discover opportunities in Ontario’s skilled trades
Ontario Newcomer Trades Action Program (ONTAP)
The Ontario Newcomer Trades Action Program (ONTAP) provides information and training related to opportunities in Ontario’s skilled trades. Supports are available to service providers, employers, and under-employed community members interested in long-term, rewarding career opportunities.
Sessions are open to everyone and there is no cost to participate.
ONTAP helps job-seekers explore opportunities in Ontario’s 144 skilled trades and better understand what employers are looking for.
ONTAP provides service providers in Simcoe/Muskoka with all of the information they need to advise clients on opportunities in the skilled trades, including (but not limited to) foreign experience recognition process, local resources, labour market information, viable career pathways, and alternative careers.
ONTAP helps employers develop strategies for attracting, training, and retaining newcomers as employees. Sessions also review how employers can support their internationally-trained workers with apprenticeship and trade equivalency assessment processes.
