Aug. 13: Employers Get Funding for Workplace Training


Twenty-nine employers have been approved funding to provide training for new or current employees in welding, manufacturing, and occupational health and safety. Under the Canada Job Grant, the federal government provides two-thirds of the total eligible training costs up to $10,000, while employers contribute the remaining one-third of the costs. Small businesses have additional flexibility to make an in-kind contribution towards their share of the cost through wages paid to the training participant.
