Canada Ontario Job Grant (COJG)
COJG helps employers invest in their workforce.
Small employers (fewer than 100 employees) can receive funding to cover 83% of training costs.
In some cases, small employers may qualify for funding of up to 100% of training costs (if they are training an unemployed new hire).
This program supports unemployed individuals, and enhances job creation, quality and advancement opportunities.
