The provincial government just announced that there is $9.6 million in Canada-BC Job Grant funding available. Employers and organizations acting on behalf of employers can apply now for skills training funding with start dates between Oct. 1, 2016, and Dec. 31, 2016.
The Canada-BC Job Grant is a cost-sharing program that helps employers offset the cost of training for new or current employees. The governments provide two-thirds of the total training cost up to $10,000 per employee, with the employer contributing one-third of the cost of training.
