Second Career & RESP Funding
The Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities have developed the “second career strategy” to assist individuals who are currently looking to change their career path, are in pursuit of better jobs or are seeking to get trained for a new career. This program assists individuals in determining their area of interest to help them make the right career choice.
The second career strategy program may assist funding up to $28,000 or even more in some cases to help pay for:
- Program Tuition
- Living Expenses
- Other living and training costs
- Books and Kit

- This program is developed for individuals who are currently laid off or have been laid off after January 01st 2005.

We encourage students looking to apply to second career funding to visit the college in person to sit with our career advisors to help them decide which program is right for them.
A registered education savings plan (RESP) is a special savings plan that is used to save early for a student’s education and can be used upon completion of high school. This plan is registered by the government of Canada and can be used for training at community colleges, universities and private career colleges. Body Pro is a registered Private Career College under the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities. We accept RESP funding for students who are enrolled in the full time program for aesthetics (spa beauty therapy), hairstyling, para-medical aesthetics, nail technician and makeup artistry.
For more information we encourage you book an appointment with our career advisors to assist you in choosing the right career.
