Canada Job Grant
The Canada Job Grant (CJG) is a six-year training grant available across Canada. From 2014 to 2020, businesses can apply for their provincial variant of the program (ie. Canada-Ontario Job Grant) to cover up to 66 per cent of third-party training costs to advance the skill set and employability of their workforce.
There is a maximum of $10,000 in grant funding per trainee, but no overall cap on the number of trainees that can receive CJG grants. Trainees involved in a CJG funded training initiative should receive a wage increase, a new job title, an avoidance of job loss, or be a newly hired employee.
Upon full implementation of the Grant under the Labour Market Agreements, nearly 130,000 Canadians each year are expected to be able to access the training they need to take gainful employment or improve their skills for in-demand jobs.
This program is open to incorporated Canadian businesses of all sizes, and most provinces have an active variant that you can apply under right now, excluding Québec (which has its own programs).
