Funding provided by the Government of Canada through the Canada Job Grant Programs delivered by the Government of Ontario

Centre for Education & Training is pleased to assist employers with their Canada-Ontario Job Grant (COJG) applications.

The COJG provides direct financial support for employers to deliver training to existing and new employees. This grant program allows employers to choose both the training that meets their workforce development needs and the individuals to be trained.

The Canada Ontario Jobs Grant provides direct financial support for employers looking to purchase training for their workforce. The cost of the training is a shared investment between employers and the government. Up to a $15,000 grant per person is available.
