The Canada-Alberta Job Grant (CAJG) is available NOW! and will reimburse employers for two-thirds of their eligible employee training costs to a maximum of $10,000 per individual to a total of $300,000 per company per year.  The training needs to be preapproved by the government prior to registration.

The grant assists employers in obtaining the practical, industry specific training their employees need.

In order to be eligible for the grant, the training must meet the following requirements:

1.  minimum of 21 hours in instructional length*, and

2. Completed within 52 weeks, and

3.  Results in credentialing, and

4.  Delivered by a third party
