How Can the Canada-B.C. Job Grant Grow My Business?

For small business owners, training employees can be one of the most challenging and expensive parts of expanding operations. But having a skilled team behind you is one of the best ways you can make sure your business reaches, maintains and exceeds your goals for growth. The Canada-B.C. Job Grant is designed to solve these problems for employers.

What is the Canada-B.C. Job Grant?

The Canada-B.C. Job Grant is a program that assists BC employers to invest in employee training, with the total training cost divided between the employer and the government. This helps employers and makes keeping jobs easier for British Columbians by encouraging work skills development.

The funding made available by the Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia reimburses 2/3 (two-thirds) of employee training costs, with a maximum of $10,000 for each employee trained per fiscal year, providing the budget, training capacity and hiring and retention strategy you need to advance your business.

In addition, small business employers may qualify for reimbursement for up to 100% of eligible training costs, if the training will result in the employer hiring a previously unemployed person, up to a maximum of $15,000 for each future employee.

Small business is a priority sector crucial to BC’s economy and labour market, meaning small businesses can easily access funding. Your small business may qualify for the Canada-B.C. Job Grant 2016/17 intake.

Applications are now open for training that starts on or before September 30, 2016.
