Canada-Manitoba Job Grant
JANUARY 30, 2015
The Canada-Manitoba Job Grant is a job grant recently announced by Industry Services (a ministry of the Government of Manitoba) in partnership with the Government of Canada. The grant provides up to $10,000 of funding per employee that attends eligible training programs. The grant is provided over the period of April 1, 2015 to March 31, 2016, and Industry Services is accepting applications now for the upcoming fiscal year. Training must be approved before the course begins in order to be eligible for funding.
There is a limited amount of funding allocated to this program. Last year the program began in July and funding ran out by December. Therefore it is important to identify and apply for qualifying training courses early to get approval.
The details of this grant are found here (http://www.gov.mb.ca/tce/iwd/pdf/cig_employer_factsheet.PDF), including the contact details on how to apply. Contact PKBW Group for more information on the program.
