Train your workers and watch your team and business succeed. Then Canada-Ontario Job Grant offers employers training incentives.

The Canada-Ontario Job Grant gives businesses funding to help train workers. No one knows better than you what skills your team needs to succeed. So you choose the workers and the training.

 BEVA’s note:

In other words there is a 38% return on your investment (ROI) when you train your employees!

Why should I train my workers?

Training can improve business performance, profit and staff morale. The Canadian Apprenticeship Forum tells us that, on average, a $1 investment in training returns benefit to the employer of $ 1.38. If you want to give your business the benefits of workplace training, this grant is for you.

How much funding can I get?

The Grant will fund, on average, two-thirds of a worker’s eligible training costs, to a maximum of $ 10,000. Eligible training costs include tuition and fees, textbooks and materials.

You contribute the remaining costs, and employ the worker you train.

Is any business eligible for funding?

Individual businesses and business organizations can apply. Broader public sector organizations or Canada-Ontario Job Grant service providers aren’t eligible.

Also, you can’t apply if you’re already receiving government funding to train the same worker.
