The provincial government will pay 85 per cent of the apprenticeship training program for employees registered for 2013 horticultural winter apprenticeship training. There are a limited number of seats each year at Ontario colleges.

To qualify for registration, one needs to be working in the industry, have a SIN number, completed grade 12, have the employer as a sponsor and be a Canadian citizen. Employers may register an employee with the local Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU) office.

Colleges offering the program include Fanshawe College, Humber, Loyalist College, Mohawk College, and University of Guelph Campus at Kemptville.
