Complete your Apprenticeship with Financial Assistance from Manitoba Public Insurance
If you’re an apprentice in the Motor Vehicle Body Repairer Program or the Motor Vehicle Body Painter Program, offered through Apprenticeship Manitoba, Manitoba Public Insurance will help you complete your education.
Manitoba Public Insurance provides the following financial assistance:
- A $5,000 (maximum) Tool Allowance
- A $2,000 Apprenticeship Grant after successful completion of each level of your program. That's up to $8,000 for apprentices in the four-level Motor Vehicle Body Repairer Program and up to $4,000 for apprentices in the two-level Motor Vehicle Body Painter Program.
These grants will help to attract and retain a skilled collision repair workforce in Manitoba, and a strong working relationship between the trade and Manitoba Public Insurance. They are being offered through a recently signed four-year agreement among the Automotive Trades Association, Manitoba Motor Dealers Association and Manitoba Public Insurance.
This program expires Dec. 31, 2016. The Tool Allowance will be applied for those who have completed level one of either program and have purchased tools after Jan. 1, 2010. The Apprenticeship Grant will be applied for those who completed any program level after Jan. 1, 2010.
