Canada-Ontario Job Grant (COJG)
The objective of the COJG is to provide direct financial support to employers who wish to purchase training for potential or existing employees. Employers choose the individuals they would like to have trained, and the training that meets their workforce development needs. The cost of training is a shared investment between employers and the Provincial and Federal Governments. http://www.tcu.gov.on.ca/eng/eopg/cojg/
Job Matching and Placement
The objective of this program is to provide wage incentives to offset employer costs, such as the temporary loss of productivity, increased supervision requirements and other expenses involved in hiring new employees. http://www.tcu.gov.on.ca/eng/eopg/programs/es.html
