Canada - Ontario job Grant

One of the most valuable assets as an employer is your workers. By investing in your employees knowledge, skills and well-being, you are investing in the future strength and health of your business, and are empowering them with the ability to provide better service. Training incentives are an excellent way to keep your employees engaged and upgrade their skills.

One of these incentives is The Canada-Ontario Job Grant (COJG). The Canada-Ontario Job Grant provides opportunities for employers, individually or in groups, to invest in their workforce with help from the government. This grant provides direct financial support to individual employers or employer groups who wish to purchase training for their employees. It is available to small, medium and large businesses with a plan to deliver short-term training to existing and new employees.

Important to know:

  • Employers can get up to $10,000 in government support per person for training costs.
  • The training has to be delivered by an eligible, third-party trainer.
  • Starting April 1, 2018, the government will improve COJG support for small businesses with less than 100 employees by decreasing their contribution requirement to 1/6 of training costs and by removing their in-kind contribution requirement. Employers with 100 or more employees will be able to access COJG support with a contribution requirement of 1/2 of the training costs.
  • For employer groups who want to apply for training supports, the government offers a COJG Consortium Stream. The Consortium Stream allows a group of employers (more than 2 employers) to pool their resources to support common training objectives and goals.
  • To apply as a consortium, the intermediary organization needs to ensure all the participating employers and trainees meet COJG requirements and are able to make their required contribution towards the training cost.
  • After April 1, the intermediary organization will be paid 15% of the approved COJG ministry contribution to cover the administrative cost related to the completion of the consortium application.

If you’re an employer with a particular skills demand, the Canada-Ontario Job Grant might be right for you. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis. Wondering how the Sault Community Career Centre can assist with this grant? Contact one of our Job Developers today to learn more!
