The Canada Job Grant will provide up to $10,000 in government support per person for training costs. Employers will be required to contribute one-third of the total costs of training. There is additional flexibility for small businesses to provide an in-kind contribution towards their share of the costs. Training must be delivered by an eligible, third-party trainer.
If you are an employer with a particular skills demand, the Canada Job Grant might be right for you. More information and applications can be found on the Job Grant website. Although the website is live and applications can be submitted, it is important to understand that decisions will not be made until November 2014.
