About the Canada Alberta Job Grant

The Canada-Alberta Job Grant (CAJG) is an employer driven training program, where employers and government share the cost of training new and existing employees to increase knowledge and skill-sets to meet the needs of Alberta's changing economy. 


How the Canada-Alberta Job Grant Can Work for You

By supporting and investing in employee training, the CAJG helps you to increase productivity, employee skills, and employee retention. The CAJG can be applied to many training institutions, offering employers potential solutions to their workplace challenges. 

The CAJG is an employer-driven training program. As an employer, you decide who gets training and what type of training may be needed for new and existing employees. 


Employers will cover a minimum of one third of direct training costs, while the government covers two thirds, up to a maximum of $10,000 per trainee. If hiring and training an unemployed Albertan, up to 100% of training costs could be covered to a maximum of $15,000 per trainee. 

Eligible employers will have a cap on the amount of grant funding they can receive annually ($300,000) to ensure that funding will be available for as many Alberta employers as possible.
