This grant program aims at financially helping businesses with staff training, either to update or learn new skills, thus allowing the organization to remain competitive in its market.
To start, the employer needs to identify the training program to be delivered to staff, and then, fill out a registration form to the grant program. Once the application is complete and approved by the ministry, the employer receives an amount covering a portion of the direct costs associated with the training. The employer covers the balance.
In the instance an employer hires an unemployed individual to a position that requires training to do the job, costs of training could be totally paid through the Canada-Ontario Job Grant Program.
Fill out and submit an application via the Ministry of Labour, Immigration, Training and Skills Development website by clicking here.
