The Canada-BC Job Grant (CJG) is a cost-sharing program that
can help employers off-set the costs of training current or future employees.
The CJG will cover up to two-thirds of the cost of training an employee—to a
maximum of $10,000—and the employer is expected to cover the remaining third.
The CJG has reopened for 2016 and is now accepting
applications from a number of target groups.
As a student or employer you may want to know whether RRU
programs are eligible for funding through the Canada-BC Job Grant program. The
simple answer is yes. All BC public post-secondary institutions are considered
eligible training providers, which includes RRU.
However, there are a number of other criteria that must be
met in order to qualify for CJG funding. Review the CJG website carefully,
especially the eligibility criteria document, and discuss this grant with your
employer/employee to determine if it’s the right fit.
More information on the Canada-BC Job Grant can be found on
the WorkBC website.
