Did you know that the Canadian Government has a program that could reimburse up to $10,000 per employee to help fund staff training?

As an employer, you are in the best position to identify the skills your business needs to be successful. The Canada Job Grant offers funding towards the cost of training provided by eligible third-party trainers. The total cost of training will be shared between the Government of Canada and employers.

The Government of Canada could provide two-thirds of the cost of training, up to a maximum of $10,000 per grant. Employers will be required to contribute the remaining one-third of the training costs.  Each province is responsible for determining the design and delivery (including who is recognized as a training provider) of the Job Grant Fund Program in their jurisdictions.  As an example in Ontario, HRAI has been recognized by the Ontario Government as a training provider under the Ontario Job Grant Fund Program.  Click on this link to check out the job grant fund guidelines in your province.  Learn what possibilities and opportunities await you.
