Canada-Ontario Job Grant

The Canada-Ontario Job Grant provides direct financial support for employers who want to train their workers. In this grant program, employers choose the individuals they would like to have trained, and the training that meets their workforce development needs.  

The cost of training is a shared investment between employers and the government.  The employer is required to contribute one-third of the total costs.  There will be additional flexibility for small businesses to provide an in-kind contribution towards a portion of the costs. 

The government will fund up to 66% of skills training for employees in Ontario, to a maximum of $10,000 per individual.

Training must not exceed one year in duration and must be provided by one of the following:

  • Colleges of applied arts and technology
  • Publicly-assisted universities
  • School boards
  • Private trainers operating in compliance with the Private Career Colleges Act, 2005
  • Union-based training centres
