Canada-Ontario Job Grant program (COJG)

Save thousands on employee training through the Canada-Ontario Job Grant. Are you an employer interested in acquiring training to upgrade the skill sets of your employees? COJG is a new cost sharing program to help businesses with financial support to train new or existing staff. Businesses can access funding for up to two-thirds of a worker’s eligible training costs, up to a maximum of $10,000. Training must be provided by a third party and be completed within one year.

WEST is currently accepting COJG applications through the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU) website. Please click on the link below for more information, or contact Angela Barrass, Employment Services Coordinator at 416-848-7980 x 303 or angelaba@westnh.org.
