Canada-BC Job Grant Program Can Help Your Business Enhance Capacity

Providing Small Business with Staff Training Grants

Did you know that eligible small business owners and entrepreneurs can access up to $10,000 per employee, per fiscal year, through the Canada-BC Job Grant (CJG)?

This grant program is designed to provide small businesses with the fiscal means to grow their business by offsetting costs of skills training and professional development.

Created to help British Columbia’s small businesses invest in employee training, CJG reimburses employers two thirds of eligible employee training costs.

Small Business BC is the service provider for this grant program. Their advisors can help your business to:

• identify appropriate training opportunities and delivery options

• develop a training plan that will suit small business owners’ needs

• guide businesses through the reimbursement process

Applications are now open for training programs that start on, or before, September 30, 2016.

The CJG is on a first-come first-served basis, and all application approvals are subject to funding availability.

Businesses are encouraged to contact Small Business BC by email, at jobgrant@smallbusinessbc.ca, or call 1.800.675.8596.
