Workplace Training

By mmuise

Workplace Training is a participant-centred training program that provides employer-delivered incremental training, work-site training and paid work experience for participants to obtain and maintain a job that would not otherwise occur.
Participating employers agree to on-the-job training and/or provide work experience, with the expectation that participants are able to engage and maintain employment with the employer. They get reimbursed up to 70% of training costs for a new employee, for up to 30 weeks.

Comments on Funding:

Funding takes the form of a wage subsidy of up to 70% of training costs for a new employee, for up to 30 weeks, but not more than $390/week.
