Ontario Businesses Can Apply Now for the Canada-Ontario Job Grant
Small, medium and large employers across Ontario can now apply for the Canada-Ontario Job Grant to invest in skills training for new and existing employees.
Ontario is also launching Expressions of Interest (EOI) for two pilot projects – the Canada-Ontario Job Grant: Customized Training and the Canada-Ontario Job Grant: UpSkill. They are asking employers to give their opinion through the EOI process to help design the pilot projects.
Once finalized, businesses and sector organizations will be invited to participate in the two projects. Funding is provided by the Government of Canada through the Canada Job Grant. Programs are delivered by the Government of Ontario.
Canada Ontario Jobs Grant:
- Provides up to $10,000 in government support per person for training costs.
- Requires employers to contribute one-third of the total costs. There will be additional flexibility for small businesses to provide an in-kind contribution towards their share of the costs.
- Requires training to be delivered by an eligible, third-party trainer.
