Canada-Ontario Job Grant
Canada - Ontario Job Grant program
Ontario’s workforce is our most valuable asset. As the economic environment evolves, so do the skill needs of employers. Experience shows that employer involvement in training improves business performance.
On March 28, 2014, Ontario signed the Canada-Ontario Job Fund Agreement with the federal government. The agreement is a key source of funding for new initiatives to help Ontario’s employers develop their workforce through employer-led training.
Canada-Ontario Job Grant (the Job Grant) provides an opportunity for employers to invest in their workforce, with help from the government.
The Job Grant will provide direct financial support to individual employers who wish to purchase training for their employees. It will be available to small, medium and large businesses with a plan to deliver short-term training to existing and new employees, and will:
- Provide up to $10,000 in government support per person for training costs.
- Require employers to contribute one-third of the total costs. There will be additional flexibility for small businesses to provide in-kind contribution towards their share of the costs.
- Require training to be delivered by an eligible, third-party trainer.
If you're an employer with a particular skill demand,
the Canada-Ontario Job Grant might be right for you!
