Canada & Ontario Governments All Set To Launch Canada Job Grant

27 September, 2014

Canadian minister of Employment and Social Development, Jason Kenney, in association with the Ontario’s minister of Training, Colleges and Universities, Reza Moridi announced that Ontario is now accepting applications from employers for the Canada Job Grant.

The Canada Job Grant is an employment-driven approach, which is designed to help Canadians to gain skills and training that is required to grab available opportunities. It is outlined to address the business needs of all sizes, in all industries and regions. Also, this program will financially aid applicants by providing $15,000 to each person for training costs, which includes tuition and training materials.

With the help of career colleges, the program will provide the graduates with the right combination of in-class training and on-the-job experience through which they can acquire required skills that are expected by the employers.

Additionally, the Government of Ontario is also planning to introduce Expressions of Interest for two pilot projects to examine new approaches to employer-driven training. Employers, who are interested to take part in these pilot projects, should approach the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities.

Sources stated that employment in Ontario has increased by 27,100 jobs in the second quarter of 2014. It has to be mentioned here that Canada needs 300,000 workers in the construction, 150,000 workers in the petroleum and 145,000 workers in the mining sector over the next 10 years.
