Reach your business potential faster by saving thousands of dollars on staff training.

The Canada Ontario Job Grant (COJG) is an employer-driven initiative that offers financial support for employers to offset the cost of training new hires or current employees.

This Employment Ontario ​service is funded in part by the Government of Canada and the Government of Ontario.

A Shared Investment

The Canada Ontario Job Grant will provide you with direct financial support to train new or existing staff. You simply select the individuals you want trained and the training that meets your workforce development needs.

The cost of the training is shared between the employer (1/2) and the Government (1/2), up to a total of $10,000 per trainee. Additional financial support is available to employers with 100 or fewer employees, ratio is employer (1/6) and the Government (5/6).  Those training a new hire may receive up to 100% and up to $15,000. Some conditions apply.
