Funding Opportunity: Workplace Training for Innovation Pilot Project Ref#75923

 

Please find below for your information a link which outlines the recently announced Ministry of Advanced Education and Labour Market Developments Workplace Training for Innovation Pilot Program.
This program could provide your employers with funding to provide important employee training.  The program is budgeted for $13 million, and therefore it is vital that this information be communicated to chamber members and employers as quickly as possible to ensure they have every opportunity to participate.
This initiative, funded through the Federal Strategic Training and Transition Fund, is designed to provide eligible employers with funding for employee training in order to:
  • improve productivity;
  • support the introduction of new technology, machinery/equipment or work processes;
  • enhance international competitiveness; and/or,
  • introduce innovative training and workplace strategies to increase the long-term competiveness of the organization and its workforce

Both businesses and not-for-profit employers may be eligible to receive funding.  Eligible employers must be small organizations (less than 50 employees), who have been in existence for one year or more and who are in good standing with the British Columbia Corporate Registry.  Applications will be processed on a first-come/first-served basis, subject to availability of funding.

Complete eligibility criteria are contained in the application form and program guidelines at: (no longer available)
