Financial Assistance for Training Available Through Canada Job Grant

Canada Job Grant

Canada Job GrantNeed financial help to pay for Queen’s IRC training programs? The Canada Job Grant, administered by each province, covers two-thirds of the cost of approved training, with the employer paying one-third. It is available to businesses across Canada to provide employees with training to upgrade skills or develop new skills.

The Canada Job Grant:

  • Provides up to $10,000 in government support per person for training costs.
  • Requires employers to contribute one-third of the total costs.
  • Requires training to be delivered by an eligible, third-party trainer.
  • May be used to support training costs for tuition fees or fees charged by training providers.

How to Apply

Provinces and Territories are responsible for the design and delivery of the Canada Job Grant in their jurisdictions. Learn more about the Canada Job Grant in your province and how to apply:

Are Queen’s IRC programs eligible for the Canada Job Grant?

We have had several people approved for Queen’s IRC training programs through the Job Grant program.

We are happy to assist with any additional information that employers require for applications, and to accommodate any requests from the provincial Job Grant representatives to visit the classroom to ensure attendance, if required.

Please be aware that the rules and regulations may vary by province, and that some Queen’s IRC programs may not be eligible for the Job Grant program. (For example: The Canada-Alberta Job Grant requires training programs to have a minimum of 24 hours of training, meaning only our three, four and five-day programs would qualify.) Some provinces may require that training be completed in their province, and you may need to request special consideration to attend a program in another province, if you wish to have it approved for funding under the Job Grant program.


* The governments of Canada and Quebec have recognized that the Quebec training system already includes the key principles of the Canada Job Grant. Information on Labour Market programs in Quebec is available from the Ministry of Employment and Social Solidarity.
