Labour Force Training

By mmuise
Description:

The Labour Force Training Program provides funding to eligible New Brunswick businesses and organizations to train individuals who are being considered for an available job in their company and/or to improve the skills and opportunities of their new or existing employees.


Comments on Funding:

There are two levels of funding available:
- Level 1 provides 50% funding, through a reimbursement of eligible training costs based on the program consultant’s assessment.
- Level 2 provides 25% funding, through a reimbursement of eligible training costs based on the program consultant’s assessment.
The maximum government contribution per employer, per region, per fiscal year is $40,000.
The minimum eligible cost per training, per fiscal is $500.
The applicant must financially contribute towards the eligible training costs. The contribution amount is based on the department level of funding.
Applicants may receive funding contributions from other federal and/or provincial departments and/or the private sector towards the training provided that the funding is not for the same total costs eligible under the Labour Force Training program, and/or is not being used by the applicant towards their contribution.
