What is the Canada-BC Job Grant?
The Canada-BC Job Grant is an employer-driven, cost-sharing program that helps employers invest in training for their current or future employees.
In most cases, the grant reimburses up to two-thirds of the cost of training an employee, to a maximum government contribution of $10,000 per fiscal year for each employee trained.
New this year, employers may qualify for reimbursement of up to 100% of training costs, to a maximum government contribution of $15,000 per employee trained, through the Canada-BC Job Grant Unemployed Stream.
For current applications through the Priority Sectors Stream, training must start between April 1 and August 31, 2017.
Back in Motion, Avia Employment Services, and Skills Connect for Immigrants staff will be assisting BC Employers with applications for employee training.
