Laid-off due to COVID-19

  • You were laid off on or after March 1, 2020.

  • You have a high school education or less; you were laid-off from an occupation requiring no more than a high school education and job-specific training, such as food and beverage servers, flight attendants and retail salespersons.

  • You were laid-off from an industry hit hard by the pandemic, such as hospitality and food services, transportation and warehousing or wholesale and retail trade.

  • You want to train for a career in demand in a local community or provincial priority area.
