How does the Canada Job Grant work?
The Canada Job Grant is a program that combines federal and provincial funding to subsidize training for employees of private and non-profit organizations. Approved funding is granted on a first-come, first-served basis, and each year’s funding coincides with the government’s fiscal year of April 1 to March 31.
How do I apply for a Canada Job Grant?
Each Province and Territory has its own process, so you’ll want to enquire where you live. In most parts of Canada, you can apply online, by email or regular mail, but in some places, you’ll need to apply in person.
Who is eligible to apply?
The Canada Job Grant invites applications from employers in private and non-profit organizations. The program aids employers in training new hires and in upgrading the skills of their existing employees.
How does the application and approval process work?
There are four steps to the Canada Job Grant process. First, the employer identifies the training needs. Next comes the application process. After the application is approved, the training takes place, and following that proof that the training was completed is required and any remaining reimbursements for the funding is sent. The employee is now ready to put their new skills into action on the job.
How long does it take to get a grant application approved?
The approval process generally takes between 30 and 60 days. We recommend allowing at least 60 days between the date of your application and the start date of your Global Knowledge course.
What kinds of training are covered by the Canada Job Grant?
Employers can use the Canada Job Grant to subsidize a wide range of courses. Funds can be used to give an employee the necessary skills for greater responsibilities or a more senior position. The grant can also be used to refresh, maintain or upgrade a worker’s knowledge of an existing role.
