Hours of Operation


To work at many jobs in Ontario you need to have an Ontario High School Diploma. You
also need to have an Ontario High School Diploma for most apprenticeships and to go
on to further education.




It depends on your educational, work and life experiences. Through the Prior Learning
Assessment and Recognition (PLAR)
process, you can be awarded several high school
credits towards the Ontario Secondary School Diploma. In some instances, this could
be accomplished within a year.
