Going to apprenticeship training is an exciting opportunity, but it's also stressful when you're looking at no pay cheque for 2 months!
I got called to go to school one week before the start date, and I wasn’t quite ready for the expenses that school brings. Not being at work for a few months was going to be financially difficult for me as I had just recently moved into my own place. Paying rent for my home as well as in Prince Albert - where I was attending school - was difficult while not working.
Having SuRe Innovations join MERIT was a huge bonus for me. Receiving 100% of my tuition back helped out tremendously to catch up with bills , payments, and just get back on track faster. My application was processed quickly and my cheque arrived a little over a month after I started back to work.
Having that extra money when I needed it made a huge difference for me.
