Q- Do students need to complete the OYAP Application Form – page 1 if they are not planning to pursue the apprenticeship beyond their Co-Op experience?

A- Yes. All students participating in an OYAP Co-Op placement will be registered with the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities as an OYAP participants which allows them to participate at the apprenticeship level, a much more complete experience than only co-op, which has liability limitations in the workplace.


Q. Will all of the hours that a student accumulates in their OYAP placement be counted towards their apprenticeship hours if they become signed apprentices?

A- Although all accumulated hours are available for credit, not all may necessarily be counted. The apprenticeship hours that will be credited to the student upon signing an apprenticeship agreement will be negotiated between the employer, the student and the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities.
