Description

Train Your Employees for 1/3 of the Cost

Up to $10,000 in Government Funding Available per Employee

Canada-Ontario Job Grant provides an opportunity for employees to invest in their workforce, with help from the Government. The Job Grant provides direct financial support to individual employers who wish to purchase training for their employees, and will:

  • Provide up to $10,000 in Government support per person for training costs
  • Require 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 costs
  • Require training to be delivered by an eligible, third party trainer such as Algonquin College Corporate Training

The Grant is new and offers construction firms a great opportunity to enable training for key employees. A few construction examples exist presently with firms participating in leadership training programs at Algonquin College Corporate Training with 2/3 rds of the cost covered by the Canada-Ontario Job Grant.

Joanne Snell of Algonquin College Corporate Training will provide insight as to their experience in providing training under this new program, explain the eligibility and what costs are covered.

Joanne will be joined by a representative with one of the Employment Offices who administers the program and approves applications to assist in ensuring that we are able to provide answers to all questions and have some discussions about potential opportunities that you may be considering.
