Canada-Saskatchewan Job Grant – Train the employees you need

The program is not accepting applications at this time. Further updates coming in March 2017.  

The Canada-Saskatchewan Job Grant provides employers with funding to train new or existing employees to meet the skill requirements for available jobs. If you are an employer in Saskatchewan and you’re looking to fill a potential job vacancy or develop your employees’ current skillsets, you could be eligible for a Canada-Saskatchewan Job Grant. The Job Grant covers up to two-thirds of eligible training costs, or up to $10,000 per trainee.

How does the Canada-Saskatchewan Job Grant work?

  • The employer decides who gets the training and the type of training needed.
  • Employers can make multiple grant applications to a maximum of $250,000 annually and receive up to $10,000 per trainee.
  • The employer invests one-third of the training costs and gains the benefit of a worker who is skilled and ready to work. The Canada-Saskatchewan Job Grant will reimburse the employer for the remaining two-thirds of eligible training costs.
  • Eligible training costs include tuition and mandatory student fees, textbooks, software and other required materials, and exam fees.
  • Training must result in a new employee being hired or a better job for an existing employee.
  • The Canada-Saskatchewan Job Grant supports new investments in training and is not intended to replace an employer’s existing investment in training.
  • The Canada-Saskatchewan Job Grant is open to businesses and non-profit organizations in Saskatchewan.
