Youth Apprentices – Saskatchewan
What is SYA?
SYA – Saskatchewan Youth Apprenticeship – raises awareness of apprenticeship in Saskatchewan schools by helping young people discover what rewards come with being a Youth Apprentice and working in the skilled trades. SYA enhances student career development by exploring the world of opportunities skilled trades offer Saskatchewan youth.
What is Apprenticeship?
Being a Youth Apprentice is a great way to learn job skills while earning money. It combines hands-on learning where experts in a trade (called journeypersons) pass on their knowledge and expertise to employees (called apprentices) right on the job. This practical training is combined with periods of technical training. Learn more about the exciting career opportunities in the skilled trades by watching the video below.
What are the benefits of taking SYA in high school?
Besides getting a head start on career planning and having a record of your achievements, youth who complete all three levels and register as an apprentice in a designated trade within five years receive the following benefits:
- waiver of registration fee (currently $150)*
- no charge for first level of technical training tuition*
- 300 hours of trade time credit**
*The SYA Program may also be available to those who are not high school students. The financial waivers do not apply in those cases.
** For partial completion of SYA, youth only receive 100 hours of trade time credit per SYA level completed.
See your career counsellor or IA teacher for more information.
The Apprenticeship Incentive Grant (AIG) is a taxable cash grant of $1,000 per year, up to a maximum of $2,000 per person, available to registered apprentices once they have successfully finished their first or second year/level (or equivalent) of an apprenticeship program in one of the Red Seal trades.
The Apprenticeship Completion Grant (ACG) is a taxable cash grant of $2,000 maximum available to registered apprentices who have successfully completed their apprenticeship training and obtained their journeyperson certification in a designated Red Seal trade on or after January 1, 2009.
