If you are an employer with specific workforce skill needs that can be learned or developed through an existing training program, the Canada-Ontario Job Grant can help. The grant can provide funding to train individuals identified by an employer - this can include current employees or new hires.
Support for an individual's training costs under the Canada-Ontario Job Grant is shared between the government and the employer.
The government will provide 2/3 of the eligible training costs up to a maximum of $10,000 per individual.
Ontario's large employers must contribute 1/3 of eligible training costs per person. Small employers (i.e. those with fewer than 50 employees) must also contribute 1/3 of the eligible training costs. However, half of these costs (i.e. 1/6 of total eligible training costs) can consist of wages paid to the employee.
Individual employers and organizations acting on behalf of employers (i.e. industry associations, training coordinators, employer consortia, union halls) in the private and not-for-profit sectors are eligible to apply for the Canada-Ontario Job Grant.
