Opportunities for Employers through the Canada-Saskatchewan Job Grant Program

Aug 24, 2022

The Canada-Saskatchewan Job Grant provides employers with funding to train new or existing employees to meet the skill requirements for available jobs.

The Canada-Saskatchewan Job Grant is open to private sector and non-profits in Saskatchewan. The grant not only helps organizations train employees, but it also provides opportunities for workers to improve their skills, and help them reach their career path goals.

Through the program, the employer contributes one-third of the training cost, while the federal and provincial governments contribute the remaining two-thirds. Employers may make multiple grant applications of up to $10,000 per employee, to a maximum of $100,000 per fiscal year.  Examples of the training costs that are eligible for this grant include: tuition and mandatory student fees, textbooks, software and other required materials, and exam fees. 

Training must be provided by an eligible third-party training institution and must be completed within one calendar year from the start date. Training must be approved by the Ministry of Immigration and Career Training prior to taking place in order to qualify for funding.
