Employers can access the Canada-Ontario Job Grant to support the workforce training needs of their current and prospective staff. This new subsidy program provides employers with financial assistance for training to build the capacity of staff to meet industry demands, encourage growth and foster a competitive marketplace. The grant brings a new twist to traditional workforce development funding by addressing skill development as a means to secure jobs.
Employers choose the employee(s) and the training they need and then apply for the grant to receive financial reimbursement for two-thirds of their training costs, to a maximum subsidy of $10,000 per employee.
The Centre for Skills Development & Training (The Centre) is a Canada-Ontario Job Grant administrator and can assist employers in completing the application process. The Centre is also a training provider offering pre-developed workplace communication or career development certificate courses as well as skilled trades training. Customized training is also available.
