Funding opportunities

Labour Market Agreement for Persons with Disabilities

  • Workplace Supports: This program funds employers/organizations requiring training or accommodations for pre-identified employees or future employees.
  • Targeted Wage Subsidy: This program provides support to encourage employers to fill an existing position with eligible participants who would not normally be hired due to a lack of work experience.

Canada Job Grant

The Canada Job Grant has expired, and we are no longer accepting applications. We know how valuable training funds are, and that is why we are developing a more flexible program suite that will better meet the needs of job seekers and employers. We will provide more information on the new programs by mid-January, and we expect funding to be available on April 1. Check back here for updates. If you have already submitted a proposal, it will be considered based on the new program criteria, once available.
