Canada-Saskatchewan Job Grant Program Meeting the Challenge with Increased Provincial Funding

Canada-Saskatchewan Job Grant Program Meeting the Challenge with Increased Provincial Funding

Released on March 31, 2017

The Government of Saskatchewan’s 2017-18 Budget provides an additional $1 million in funding from the province to the Canada-Saskatchewan Job Grant, for a total of $7.393 million.

This employer-driven program provides eligible employers with financial support to train recruits or their existing employees for new or better jobs in their organizations.

Since its introduction in 2014, the Canada-Saskatchewan Job Grant has provided $10.191 million in funding to meet the workforce needs of employers.  Employers provide one-third of the training costs, while the federal and provincial governments contribute the remaining two-thirds.

“The Government of Saskatchewan has identified workforce education and training as a core priority in our economic agenda,” Economy Minister Jeremy Harrison said.  “Our increased investments in the Canada-Saskatchewan Job Grant program directly address employer needs.  The funding will allow more employers to collaborate with training partners to meet their specific workforce needs.”

To better meet employer needs, applications will be accepted in phases this year.  The first phase will run from April 1 to August 31, 2017.  Employers with training start dates within this period may apply to the program during this phase.  Details on the next phase will be communicated before the end of phase one.

“Dividing the program into phases will provide employers more opportunities to apply to the Canada-Saskatchewan Job Grant throughout the 2017-18 program year,” Harrison said.  “Having more qualified workers in the labour market will help Saskatchewan capture new economic opportunities and meet the challenges that come with growth.”

For more information, or to apply to the Canada-Saskatchewan Job Grant, visit the program page at www.saskatchewan.ca/job-grant.

Agency promoting Alberta livestock industry is being dismantled by provincial government

Agency promoting Alberta livestock industry is being dismantled by provincial government

An arms-length government agency that has awarded $223 million since 2008 to help the province’s livestock industry is being dismantled by the provincial government.

The Alberta Livestock and Meat Agency (ALMA) — which employs 27 to 35 people at any given time — will be absorbed into the Agriculture and Forestry Department, a move that is expected to save the province $3 million annually.

Agriculture and Forestry Minister Oneil Carlier said it was a difficult decision to make, but the government believes the work ALMA was doing can be streamlined with work being done within government.

“These are good people, they’ve done some great work over the years … but it’s mostly about a cost-saving measure,” Carlier said, adding at least some of ALMA’s employees will be able to find work within the department.

help youth in the Durham Region overcome barriers to employment with its Youth Employment Readiness Program. Participants will gain useful job skills and training through workshops and group-based activities.

They will also gain valuable work experience with local employers in areas such as retail sales, child services and marketing. Interconnection Research International is receiving over $442,000 for this important program for youth.

This is part of the Harper Government's overall strategy to help provide Canadians with the skills and training they need to connect with available jobs. The Durham riding will also receive $308,000 for the Canada Summer Jobs program to help provide employment for students and support the tourism, agriculture and non-profit sectors inDurham.

Today's announcement is one example of what the Government helps Youth in the Durham region get jobs. 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 2006, the Harper Government's Youth Employment Strategy has helped over 611,000 youth.
  • The Government is helping Canadian youth get the skills employers are looking for with the Canada Job Grant, apprenticeship grants and the new Canada Apprentice Loan. The Government also offers tax credits, such as the tuition, education and textbook tax credits, the tradesperson's tools deduction and the Apprenticeship Job Creation Tax Credit.
  • Economic Action Plan 2014 introduced the Canada Apprentice Loan, which provides apprentices registered in Red Seal trades with interest-free loans of up to $4,000 to complete their technical training. Loans are interest-free until apprentices complete or leave their apprenticeship training program, up to a maximum of six years. Since January, over 6,000 apprentices across Canada have benefited from the Canada Apprentice Loan.
  • 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.

  • Management, Staffing &
    Organizational Structure
  • Regulatory Issues

Requiring employers to pitch in helps ensure the training leads to guaranteed jobs.

 

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.

 

 

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.

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.
