Canada-Ontario Job Grant (COJG)

The Canada-Ontario Job Grant (COJG) is an Ontario government funding program that offers training grants to employers. Through the COJG program, companies may receive non-repayable funding from the government to purchase third-party business training programs, including training for in-demand skill sets.

There are three COJG levels of funding based on how many employees a business has, and whether new hires are included in the training:

  1. Large Employers (100+ Employees): Up to 50% of eligible training expenses to a maximum of $10,000 per trainee.
  2. Small Employers (<100 Employees): Up to 83% of eligible training expenses to a maximum of $10,000 per trainee.
  3. Small Employers Hiring and Training Unemployed Individuals: Up to 100% of eligible training costs to a maximum of $15,000 per trainee. All trainees are eligible for increased funding, not just those who are new hires.

“Hiring the right people is the most important determinant of success. Having funding to support those hires with training that enables them to contribute more quickly and more effectively is invaluable.”
