Goodwill Source for Canada-Ontario Job Grant

Our government is partnering with employment agencies like Goodwill to help build Ontario’s workforce for the future through the Canada-Ontario Job Grant.

If you are an employer with specific workforce skill needs that can be developed through an existing purchased training program, Goodwill can help you access funding. The grant will fund, on average, two-thirds of a worker’s eligible training costs, to a maximum of $10,000. Eligible training costs include tuition and fees, textbooks and materials.

Employers must demonstrate need and a plan and training must be delivered by an eligible, third-party trainer taking no longer than one year. For more information or to start an application, Click Here
