Canada-Ontario Job Grant

Canada-Ontario Job Grant (the Job Grant) provides an opportunity for employers to invest in their workforce, with help from the government.

The Job Grant will provide direct financial support to individual employers who wish to purchase training for their employees. It will be available to small, medium and large businesses with a plan to deliver short-term training to existing and new employees, and will:

Provide up to $10,000 in government support per person for training costs.
Require employers to contribute one-half of the total costs.  Note that there is additional flexibility for small employers (fewer than 100 employees) to contribute 1/6 of eligible training costs. Small employers who are training and hiring unemployed individuals may be eligible for 100% funding and up to $15,000 per trainee. The applications with “New Hire” trainees will be automatically assessed for 100% funding.

Require training to be delivered by an eligible, third-party trainer.
If you’re an employer with a particular skills demand, the Canada-Ontario Job Grant might be right for you. Applications will be accepted on an ongoing basis.
