Labour Force Training

By mmuise

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.
