The Transition to Work program helps pay for immediate or short-term costs that might prevent a worker from starting work with a new employer.
What is it?
This program provides funding of up to:
- $200 to help you job-seek or start work
- $5,000 to address immediate or short term barriers that prevent you from accepting an offer of new employment.
The funding could be used to pay for a range of things including clothing, travel costs or child care arrangements.
The SIRA guide for CTP vocational support, especially pages 17-19, has more information on eligibility and applying, or talk to your CTP insurer.
