Canada-Manitoba Job Grant 2024/2025 Intake

What is the Job Grant?

The Canada-Manitoba Job Grant is a cost-shared funding program that provides funding to employers to help cover training costs of new and existing employees to meet business needs, support the development of a highly skilled workforce, boost economic growth and increase employment opportunities across Manitoba. Training must be delivered by an external third party. Employers decide which of their employees need training, the training they need, who will deliver the training, and when it will occur.
