Looks like this would be a great opportunity to help those who may be less experienced gain employment.
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-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.
- 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.
