Canada-Ontario Job Grant

The Canada-Ontario Job Grant (COJG) provides an opportunity for employers to invest in their workforce, with help from the government. Employers choose the individuals they would like to have trained, and the training that meets their workforce development needs.

The Job Grant will provide direct financial support to employers to purchase training for their existing and new employees with a plan to deliver short-term training of up to 52 weeks to cover skills gaps.

The Canada-Ontario Job Grant will:

  • Pay up to 2/3 of the training costs (up to $10,000 per person)
  • Additionally, employers will be required to contribute 1/3 of the total costs. Small businesses (less than 50 employees) may be eligible for an in-kind contribution towards their share of the costs
  • Require training to be delivered by an eligible, third-party trainer
  • Employers must apply online for funding at

If you have particular skills demands or training needs for your employees, the Canada-Ontario Job Grant might be right for you. For more information, please complete the form below and one of our representatives will contact you.
