Canada-Ontario Job Grant Program

Get Government Aid to Pay for Customized Employee Training

Employee training is key to improving productivity, reducing turnover and maintaining job safety. While all employers would like to do this, a tight budget often prevents them from investing in their staff. The Canada-Ontario Job Grant offers financial assistance with employment training and development programs. Qualifying businesses can receive up to $10,000 in government support per person for training costs. The team at Employment + Education Centre can help you determine your eligibility as well as guide you through the application process. Since 1985, we have been helping job seekers and business owners in Leeds and Grenville realize their full potential. Set up a meeting to discuss your training requirements today!

What is the Canada-Ontario Job Grant?

The Canada-Ontario Job Grant provides direct financial support to individual employers who wish to purchase training for their employees. The objective is to meet the unique needs of businesses that do not have the capacity to develop the training.

Here are some important points to be aware of:

  • It is available to qualifying small, medium and large businesses with a plan to deliver short-term training to existing and new employees.
  • Employers are required to contribute one-third of the total costs, and can receive up to $10,000 in government support per person for training costs
  • There will be 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.
