Ontario Newcomer Trades Action Program (ONTAP)

At the YMCA, the Ontario Newcomer Trades Action Program is here to help you get established in one of Ontario’s 144 skilled trades.

Our Trades Action Program is open to everyone and there’s no cost to participate. This Employment Ontario project is funded in part by the Government of Canada and the Government of Ontario.

At the Y, we’re here to help you find a career that you wouldn’t trade.


For Newcomers

Find out what employers are looking for when they are hiring. Attend an ONTAP information session to explore jobs and opportunities in the skilled trades.

Learn about some of Ontario's 144 skilled trades, including: electrician, plumber, mechanic, welder, hairstylist, and cook.


For Employers

ONTAP can help employers develop an effective workforce by learning to:

  • Attract, train, and retain newcomers as employees.
  • Help internationally trained employees with their apprenticeship and trade equivalency assessment processes.
