Canada-Ontario Job Grant

Ontario's workforce is our most valuable asset. As the economic environment evolves, so do the skills needs of employers. Experience shows that employer involvement in training improves business performance.

On March 28, 2014, Ontario signed the Canada-Ontario Job Fund Agreement with the federal government. The agreement is a key source of funding for new initiatives to help Ontario's employers develop their workforce through employer-led training.


The Career Centre is pleased to administer the Canada-Ontario Job Grant (The Job Grant).

The Job Grant provides an opportunity for employers to invest in their workforce through training, and with financial support from the provincial and federal government. Employers choose the individuals to be trained and the training that meets their needs. 

The Job Grant is available to small, medium and large employers with a plan for training existing and new employees, and will:

  • Provide up to $10,000 in government support per person for training costs.
  • Require employers to contribute one-third of the total costs. There will be additional flexibility for small businesses to provide an in-kind contribution towards their share of the costs.
  • Require training to be delivered by an eligible, third-party trainer.
