Up to 100% Grant Funding to Train Employees
The Canada Ontario Job Grant will contribute up to 100% of out-of-pocket costs towards employee training to a maximum of $15,000/trainee. Eligible costs include tuition/trainer fees, training materials, clothing and tools, employee travel over 48 km. return, facility rental as well as examination, student tuition and examination expenses. Training must be delivered over a period of 1 year or less by a recognized for-profit training company (e.g. must be training for a minimum 2 years and in the field of expertise for 4 years), a public university, college or school, or a government recognized unionized or private training institution. Vendor training (i.e. training associated with the purchase of new equipment or services) is ineligible as is mandatory, executive, apprenticeship and preparatory instruction. Ontario companies with more than 100 employees must contribute 50% towards eligible costs and can receive a maximum of $10,000/trainee. Businesses with less than 100 employees are eligible for $15,000/trainee and need to contribute 1/6th of related expenses for training existing employees and contribute zero towards training new personnel. Companies with more than 500 employees are not entitled to receive funding for senior management-related instruction. There is no limit on the amount of funding requested or the frequency and number of applications, which can be made. However, funding will only be awarded for instruction given by one trainer over a period of one year or less. Please note that this program exist across Canada.
