Colleges across Ontario have a limited number of spaces available in horticultural apprenticeship training programs and are encouraging employers to register their employees now for the 2013 winter apprenticeship programs. Qualified employees need to be working in the industry, have a SIN number, have completed  grade 12, and have their employer agree to be a sponsor.

Registration takes place at a Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU) office. The provincial government in  most cases will assist with financial support.

The list of Ontario colleges offering horticultural programs includes, Fanshawe College of Applied Arts and Technology, Humber College of Applied Arts and Technology, Loyalist College of Applied Arts and University of Guelph.
