Guelph Arts Apprenticeship Program Launch

Date and Time


Cutten Fields, 190 College Avenue East, Guelph, ON N1H 6L3


The College of Arts invites you to the official launch of the Guelph Arts Apprenticeship Program (GAAP), a partnership between our donor, Alan Rottenberg, the University of Guelph, and City of Guelph Economic Development Corporation.

GAAP is a pilot program which connects new College of Arts graduates from the University of Guelph with local employment opportunities.  The program’s objective is to retain skilled talent within our community and help new graduates launch their careers in Guelph.  Employers who commit to a 12-month contract with a program participant are reimbursed for four months of salary to a maximum of $4,000 per month.  Guelph’s pilot program is looking to fill 10 positions in 2020.

We are grateful to Alan Rottenberg for this opportunity as he expands his support of liberal arts undergraduate students and local labour markets. Please join us in celebrating this unique program whose mission it is to augment the career launch of arts grads.

The University of Guelph resides on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty No. 3, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon, a covenant between Indigenous nations to live peaceably on the territories of the Great Lakes region. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn, live and work.
