The Canada-Ontario Job Grant initiative provides an opportunity for employers to invest in their workforce, with help from the government.
The Job Grant provides direct financial support to individual employers who wish to purchase training for their employees. It is available to small, medium and large businesses with a plan to deliver short-term training to existing and new employees. The grant:
- Provides up to $10,000 in government support per person for training costs.
- Requires employers to contribute one-third of the total costs. There is additional flexibility for small businesses to provide an in-kind contribution towards their share of the costs.
- Requires training to be delivered by an eligible, third-party trainer.
COJG applications are currently being accepted by Skills for Change on an ongoing basis.
