supports the inclusion and participation of Canadians with all abilities in every aspect of society.

Today's announcement is one example of what the Government is doing to help Canadians. To help hard-working families, the Government is also enhancing the Universal Child Care Benefit, introducing the Family Tax Cut and making improvements to the Child Care Expenses Deduction and the Children's Fitness Tax Credit.

Quick Facts

Since the launch of the Enabling Accessibility Fund (EAF) in 2007, the Government of Canada has funded over 1,800 projects, helping thousands of Canadians gain better access to their communities' facilities, programs and services.

In 2013, the Government of Canada extended the EAF on an ongoing basis at $15 million per year to improve accessibility in facilities across Canada, including workplaces.

In recent years, the Government of Canada has taken concrete action to support programs for people with disabilities:
The Opportunities Fund for Persons with Disabilities has helped 40,000 people with disabilities across Canada to prepare for, obtain and maintain employment or self-employment.

As of March 2015, Canadians have registered over 100,000 Registered Disability Savings Plans and have benefitted from over $1 billion in bonds and grants deposited by the federal government

The Government provides $222 million annually to the provinces and territories through Labour Market Agreements for Persons with Disabilities to help Canadians with disabilities develop skills to improve their job prospects.

Through Economic Action Plan 2014, the Government is providing $15 million over three years to the Canadian Association for Community Living to help connect people with developmental disabilities with jobs. It is also providing $11.4 million over four years to the Sinneave Family Foundation and Autism Speaks Canada to expand vocational training programs for people with autism spectrum disorders.

The Universal Child Care Benefit would increase from $100 to $160 per month (totalling up to $1,920 per year) for children under the age of 6, and parents would receive a new benefit of $60 per month (up to $720 per year) for each child aged 6 through 17.

Grant Program Assists With Training Workers

Grant Program Assists With Training Workers

 Feb 17th, 2015: The Canada – British Columbia Job Grant is a program developed jointly by the provincial and federal governments to assist business owners in the province in the hiring and training of employees. Launched last fall, the program provides two-thirds the cost of training a new or existing employee – up to a maximum government contribution of $10,000 per employee. The employer is required to contribute one-third of the training costs. Requiring employers to pitch in helps ensure the training leads to guaranteed jobs.

“We want employers to be partners as we train the workforce we need for today and the future. The Canada – B.C. Job Grant allows businesses of all sizes to access government training contributions of up to $10,000 per employee. The grant complements the work we are doing with our Skills for Jobs Blueprint. With our province facing one million job openings by 2022, we need young people and their parents to consider careers in construction, resource and technical sectors and these grants will support those choices,” explained provincial Minister of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training and Minister Responsible for Labour Shirley Bond.

The Canada – B.C. Job Grant is a flexible program that will help ensure British Columbians can find their fit in our growing and strong economy. Employers determine what kind of training is needed. Employers can choose qualified third-party providers to deliver it. All private-sector and not-for-profit organizations, with plans to train workers for a new or better job in B.C., are eligible to apply. If an organization has more than one worker to train, employers can apply for multiple grants on one application.

“Our government’s top priorities are creating jobs, economic growth and long-term prosperity. The Canada Job Grant is part of our commitment to address the paradox of too many Canadians without jobs in an economy of too many jobs without Canadians. The Canada Job Grant will help Canadians get the right skills for available jobs and will lead to a guaranteed job at the end of the training. This is good news for Canadians, employers across Canada and our economy,” said Jason Kenney, Federal Minister of Employment and Social Development.

The grant is part of the $65-million Canada-British Columbia Job Fund Agreement provided by government of Canada. Since launching in October 2014, hundreds of B.C. businesses have applied for the grant from throughout the province, representing a vast array of sectors including health care, manufacturing, agriculture, forestry, fishing and hunting.

Quick Facts:

By 2022, B.C. is expecting one million job openings created by retirements and the province’s growing economy.
More than 78% of jobs will require some form of post-secondary education, and 44% will need skilled trades and technical workers.

Ontario grants $1 million to cheese maker

Ontario grants $1 million to cheese maker

March 10th,2014 :The provincial government is doing its share to increase the 'stink' in a new St. Albert Cheese factory.

The Ontario Ministry of Agriculture is cutting a $1 million cheque to the co-operative, which lost its landmark cheese-making facility to a fire in February 2013.

“St. Albert Cheese has been a cornerstone of this community for the past 120 years, and I’m proud to support this important project," said Premier Kathleen Wynne, who doubles as agriculture minister.

"Through hard work and determination, I know St. Albert will once again be a vital part of the region’s economy and provide good jobs for local families.”

The $1 million infusion will enhance the rebirth of the cheese plant, adding 10 new jobs to the 100 that are expected to reestablished in late spring.

The factory rebuild began last September and once complete will be 30% larger than the former structure.

"Last year was a tough year for the co-op, and we were devastated when we lost everything in the fire," said Eric Lafontaine, general director, for co-operative.

"Support from the Government of Ontario will help us become a more successful facility, keeping local jobs in our community.”

The 10 new positions will purchase new equipment and install a computerized production line, helping to annually process 50 million litres of local milk.

In addition to the plant, there will be an observation decks, retail store and restaurant.

Local MPP Grant Crack said the investment acknowledges the importance of St. Albert Cheese, at 120 years old, is one of the oldest businesses in eastern Ontario.

"St. Albert Cheese is such an important part of our community, and with government support we will be able to bring back jobs and economic opportunities to the region," Crack said.

"This investment is not only good for the company, but for Ontario’s agri-food sector as a whole."

$323,000 Grant for The Action for Healthy Communities Society of Edmonton

$323,000 Grant for The Action for Healthy Communities Society of Edmonton

EDMONTON, Dec. 14, 2013 The Honourable Laurie Hawn, Member of Parliament for Edmonton Centre, on behalf of the Honourable Candice Bergen, Minister of State (Social Development), today announced support that will equip young Canadians in Edmonton with the skills and work experience needed to get jobs.

Our government is committed to creating jobs, economic growth and long-term prosperity all across Canada," said Minister Bergen. "Initiatives like this will help connect youth with jobs while ensuring that Canada's economy benefits from the skills and talents of young Canadians."

"Many young people are looking for work but can't get their foot in the door due to a lack of experience," said Mr. Hawn. "Since 2006, our government has helped more than 555 000 young people through our Youth Employment Strategy develop the skills they need to enter and succeed in the job market to the benefit of the Canadian economy."

The Action for Healthy Communities Society of Edmonton is receiving more than $323,000 from the Skills Link program to help youth facing barriers to employment get the skills and knowledge they need to find jobs. This program is part of the Government of Canada's Youth Employment Strategy (YES).

The participants will develop useful skills through workshops and gain valuable hands-on experience to prepare for jobs in the service or construction industries.

"The Action for Healthy Communities Society would like to thank the Government of Canada for funding our project once again," said Keren Schoenberger, Project Coordinator. "This program helps youth in the community obtain the employment skills needed to succeed in today's job market, and enables us to create a positive relationship between employer and employee."

Youth employment programs are part of the Government of Canada's strategy to connect Canadians with available jobs. Economic Action Plan 2013 proposes new measures to equip Canadians with the skills and training they need to fill skills shortages and succeed in the Canadian labour market.

These include the Canada Job Grant, which will invest in skills training for unemployed and underemployed Canadians, better ensuring they are qualified to fill the high-quality, well-paying jobs that are available. Economic Action Plan 2013 is also creating opportunities for apprentices and providing support to under-represented groups such as Canadians with disabilities, Aboriginal people, newcomers and youth.

Backgrounder


The Youth Employment Strategy (YES) is the Government of Canada's commitment to help youth make a successful transition to the workplace. With annual funding of approximately $300 million, YES helps youth obtain career information, develop employment skills, find jobs and stay employed. YES includes the Skills Link and Career Focus programs and the Canada Summer Jobs initiative, which creates thousands of job opportunities for students every summer.

Skills Link helps youth facing barriers to employment—including youth who are single parents, youth with disabilities, young newcomers and youth in rural and remote areas—to develop the skills and gain the experience needed to find a job or the confidence to return to school. Since 2006, the Skills Link initiative has helped over 179 000 youth get jobs or return to school.

Career Focus helps youth obtain the information, skills and experience they need to make informed career decisions, find a job or further their education—including providing career-related work experience. Since 2006, the Career Focus initiative has helped over 26 000 youth acquire skills to help them transition into the labour market.

Canada Summer Jobs provides funding to not-for-profit organizations, public-sector employers and small businesses with 50 or fewer employees to create summer job opportunities for young people aged 15 to 30 years who are full-time students intending to return to their studies in the next school year. The employer application period for Canada Summer Jobs has changed. Applications are now available at servicecanada.gc.ca/csj and must be submitted by January 31, 2014.

Federal Grant of $55,000 for Salmon Habitat

Federal Grant of $55,000 for Salmon Habitat

 

August31,2013 | www.GovernmentGrantsCanada.ca | Vancouver-BC

 

A large area of salmon habitat impacted by the Ruskin dam upgrades on the lower Stave River will be be restored.

Channels extending off the main river will be created of help young coho, chum and Chinook salmon grow, and several spawning channels that were cut off from the main river will also be re-connected.

“This is a great project because the Stave River was naturally inhabited by all Pacific salmon species, but changes to the river due to dam construction and diking have reduced habitat for salmon to spawn and for their offspring to grow and survive,” said Dr. Brian Riddell, president and CEO, Pacific Salmon Foundation, who along with the Fraser Valley Watersheds Coalition and the federal government are partnering to spend $132,108 on the project.

The Stave Valley Enhancement Society, B.C.Hydro, Kwantlen First Nation and the provincial government are also supporting the project.

“Recreational fishing is a popular leisure activity in our communities that not only brings family and friends together, but also contributes to our economy by attracting tourists and creating jobs,” said MP Kamp. “By partnering with our local groups who work on the ground to conserve fish habitat, the Government of Canada helps promote investments in recreational fisheries habitat restoration in our province, for the benefit of our communities in years to come.”

The federal government is providing $55,000 from the Fisheries and Oceans Canada's Recreational Fisheries Conservation Partnership Program for the project. The first round of government grants will help 104 projects in Canada to restore, rebuild and rehabilitate recreational fisheries habitat at a cost of $6.5 million.
