Canada Job Grants – funding available for employers to train workforce.

Tuesday, January 27th, 2015

The Canada Job Grant is an employer-driven training program. This means that employers decide on who gets training and what type of training may be needed for new and existing employees. Employers must use a third-party training provider to deliver the formal training either onsite, online, or in a classroom setting.

It is in an employer’s best interest to invest in developing the skills of their workforce, so they can get the job done and continue to operate.

The Canada Job Grant is part of the federal and provincial governments commitment to help address skills mismatches and ensure that employees are being trained in high-demand areas.

Arboriculture Canada recommends you to take advantage of this opportunity for funding to receive training for your workers in the specialized industry of arboriculture and other high angle or professional chainsaw operating work fields.  We have been approved as an eligible training body in Ontario, and expect the same in other provinces.  Please contact us to receive course outlines and quotations which are needed in order to apply for this funding.  We will do our best to provide any necessary information needed by our customers to assist you in receiving the funding.

For information about this grant, and to find each province’s page and application forms, please go to:  http://www.esdc.gc.ca/eng/jobs/training_agreements/cjg/info.shtml
