The Canada-Saskatchewan Job Grant helps employers train new or existing employees for jobs that need to be filled. This flexible program is designed to meet the needs of businesses of all sizes, in all industries and regions. Having the right skills helps employees excel and succeed in today’s fast-paced labour market.
The Canada-Saskatchewan Job Grant is an employer-driven program that:
- Helps businesses and non-profit organizations train new or existing employees for available jobs; and
- Provides more opportunities for unemployed and underemployed workers to receive training.
Through the program, the employer contributes one-third of the training cost, while the federal and provincial governments contribute the remaining two-thirds. Training must be provided by an eligible third-party training institution and must be completed within one calendar year from the start date.
The Ministry of Immigration and Career Training will contact employers within three business days to confirm receipt of applications. The Ministry will evaluate fully completed applications and provide a decision on the application within 20 business days.
