WHAT TYPES OF TRAINING CAN BE FUNDED BY THE CANADA JOB GRANT?
Any skills related training qualifies for the grant. Some of the more popular programs include: computer training, digital marketing, CRM automation, web development, digital advertising, presentation skills, leadership training, sales training and other workplace related skills.
HOW DOES THE CANADA JOB GRANT WORK FOR YOU AS AN EMPLOYER?
As an employer, you are in a position to know which areas of your business require enhanced skills training in order to get the biggest return on your training investment. If you require training for new employees or even to retrain existing employees, then the Canada Job Grant Program is perfect for you. The job grant program provides up to two thirds of the cost of training through the form of reimbursement.
HOW DOES THE APPLICATION PROCESS WORK?
If you are the employer, you would book a 40 minute webinar conversation with one of our grant experts who will help you fill out the application. You do not need to know the names of the employees at the time of application. However, once approved, you would need to provide the names of the new employees or existing employees. There is no cost to fill out the application. Once approved, you are under no obligation to move forward with the training. However, because you applied for the grant to train with our organization, Business Pros Marketing, you cannot apply the grant money to any other training organization.
WHAT COSTS ARE COVERED BY THE CANADA JOB GRANT?
Your training and tuition fees are covered as well as workbooks, textbooks, software and examination fees. Also, in some provinces, the Canada Job Grant Program covers the salaries of your employees while taking up to ⅙ the total cost of training. The program can also provide up to two thirds of the cost of training.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO APPLY FOR THE GRANT?
Each year, service providers in most Canadian cities are given a budget to spend from the Canada Job Grant Program Fund. Usually, the new money arrives in April, but depending on the number of applicants and grants approved many service providers run out of funding before the end of the year. It is always advisable to apply as early as possible.
I AM AN EMPLOYEE, HOW CAN THE GRANT HELP ME?
If you are currently unemployed, we can help you find an employer who is willing to hire you and apply to the Canada Job Grant program for your training. If you are already employed, your employer can apply to the Canada Job Grant program on your behalf to enhance your skills and prepare you for a promotion, raise, or another position within the company.
