Alberta Job Grant

What is it?
The Canada-Alberta Job Grant is an employer-driven training program. Employers decide who gets training and what type of training is needed for new and existing employees.

To qualify for funding, training must:

• be a minimum of 21 hours in length
• be completed within one year of the training start date
• be provided by a third party
• not replace prior training investments
• result in a record of completion, a mark, a certificate or an industry-recognized credential

Training can be completed online, on-site and in the classroom. Classes can be part-time or full-time.

How does it benefit employers?
This funding will provide employers with the opportunity to invest in the skill development of their current and future workforce, leading to increases in organizational productivity and retention.

What costs does it cover?
The Canada-Alberta Job Grant program provides significant savings to employers looking to pursue training for their employees. Under the grant, employers will be required to cover a maximum of one third of the costs associated with direct training. Government contributions can cover a maximum of $10,000 per employee.
