What is the Canada-Alberta Job Grant?
The Canada-Alberta Job Grant is an employer-driven
training program, where employers decide on who gets
training and what type of training is needed for new
and existing employees. The Government of Canada,
through the CAJG, helps defray the cost of that
employer-identified training, ensuring that the skills a
worker learns match up with the skills employers need.
How does it work?
First, the employers must begin by identifying the training needs of their workers. Then, the employer submits an application to the CAJG approval board, listing the name of their employees, and the training they are applying for. After CAJG approval, the employer may proceed with booking training.
The employer pays for the course in full, and upon successful completion by the student, the employer is reimbursed by the CAJG for two thirds of the training cost. (Up to a maximum of ten thousand dollars per student, or three hundred thousand dollars total for the organization)
How much can I save?
