If you're an employer who's planning to pay for the training of new or current staff in the coming months you may want to take advantage of the Canada-Ontario Job Grant, which would refund you 2/3 to 5/6 of your training costs up to $10,000 per employee.

I manage this grant program at The Career Foundation and am happy to answer any questions.

Andrei ArkhanguelskiThumbs up! It's a great program that every employer should be aware of. We're taking advantage of it and I couldn't recommend it highly enough. It's a great way to enable your employees to upgrade their skills by taking a course at a university, college or a third party training provider, such as BrainStation, Lighthouse Labs, or Bitmaker. Online courses on sites like Udemy may be acceptable if there is not a training provider in Ontario that might offer a similar course including universities, colleges or a third party training provider.

Venk ChandranI am a previous recipient of this grant.. Or whatever this initiative was called a decade ago. It helped me get a job after the startup I was at died in the dot com bust. And it helped me get back into tech. It's not just important for employers but prospective employees who want that first step but have a hard time getting experience. Use this to educate potential employers as I did.
