Adult Learning and Training Supports (ALTS)

Adult Learning and Training Supports (ALTS) provides financial help while you undertake training or upgrading. It is intended to increase your chances of finding and maintaining employment.

ALTS normally only funds training programs that are a year or less in duration, and that will lead to employment. Generally, training funded under this program falls under two categories:

  • Training that directly leads to employment after it is completed.
  • Work readiness or upgrading training.

Given the large number of applications that are submitted for programs that start in September, January and May, applications for these programs must be submitted six weeks in advance. For other start dates, applications for ALTS funding must be submitted 30 days before the start of the training program.

As of April 1, 2023, ALTS applications will follow the Financial Assistance for Nunavut Students (FANS) deadlines:

  • Fall courses: July 15, 2023
  • Winter Courses: November 15, 2023
  • Spring/Summer Courses: March 1, 2024
