The Working Centre can now help local employers apply for the Canada Ontario Jobs Grant, a flexible program that provides direct financial support to employers who wish to purchase training for their workforce.
Employers choose the individuals they would like to have trained, and the training that meets their workforce development needs.
The program is delivered through cost‐sharing agreements between individual employers and government. The Working Centre helps you to develop this agreement, and is able to approve applications training 25 employees or less.
The employer pays at least one‐third of direct training costs. Small employers (50 employees or less) have the option to contribute up to 50 per cent of their required contribution in wages paid to training participants.
The government covers two‐thirds of direct training costs, up to $10,000 per trainee.
