Get 2/3 of your training paid for with the Canada Job Grant

 

Employers First is pleased to offer access to specific training programs that are tailored to the needs of today's businesses.  We have perfected our approach to Health and Safety training and support by putting together a plan that is affordable and time saving - allowing you to focus on core activities while having a Health and Safety program that meets all areas of compliance. To learn more please visit our Unlimited Training Savings Plan page. Employers First offers 42 training courses including WHMIS, Fall Protection, Forklift, Aerial/Scissor Lift, Ladder Safety, Asbestos Awareness, Confined Space and many more.  Our training is done in-studio or via webinar, and you are always trained by a professional trainer who can answer your questions.

In addition, you are provided with a Policy & Procedure manual and access to the Hotline Service, which connects you to a Senior Consultant to provide one-on-one consulation on employee issues, WSIB, Ministry of Labour issues or general health and safety advice.  It's a great package and coupled with the discounts from the Training Grants, it's an incredible value.  Packages for 1-5 Employees start at $1100 for unlimited training, but with the grant reimbursement you will only pay 2/3 of that - around $366 - with the balance to be reinvested in your business.  It's hard to beat this value so please contact us today to get the application process started.

Canada Job Grant provides an opportunity for employers to invest in their workforce, with help from the government.

The Job Grant will provide direct financial support to individual employers who wish to purchase training for their employees. It will be available to small, medium and large businesses with a plan to deliver short-term training to existing and new employees, and will:

 

  •  Provide up to $10,000 in government support per person for training costs.
  •  Require employers to contribute 1/3 of the total costs. There will be additional flexibility for small businesses to provide an in-kind contribution towards their share of the costs.
  •  Require training to be delivered by a eligilble, third-party trainer (Employers First is the eligible trainer)

 

If you're an employer with a particular skills demand, the Canada Job Grant might be right for you. Applications will be accepted on an ongoing basis.  We have access to programs in all provinces, please contact us to confirm your eligibilty.  To date, we have not had any applications denied!
