What is OYAP?
OYAP is a ministry-approved specialized program that enables students to earn credits towards their OSSD by taking a cooperative education course for which the community component is in an apprenticeship trade.
Students who participate in OYAP, gain access to employers who are looking for the opportunity to train the skilled workers in specific job sectors. This program addresses the problem of the impending shortage of skilled tradespeople across Ontario, and specifically encourages young people to consider joining the trades. OYAP provides students with a head start in a skilled trade career!
