On March 28, 2014, Ontario signed the Canada-Ontario Job Fund Agreement with the federal government, which will provide Ontario with $192 million per year for the next six years.
The Agreement is a key source of funding for new employer-led training through the Canada-Ontario Job Grant.
As part of the Canada-Ontario Job Grant, the ministry has launched two new, employer-driven skills training pilots — Canada-Ontario Job Grant: Customized Training and Canada-Ontario Job Grant: UpSkill.
Applications are now open for the grant program. We are also accepting applications for Canada-Ontario Job Grant: Customized Training, and proposals for Canada-Ontario Job Grant: UpSkill.
Ontario must continue to develop a workforce with the right skills and knowledge for the new economy. Our skilled workforce is and must continue to be our greatest competitive advantage.
We are committed to working with employers to provide more training to their own employees.
