Alberta Jobs Now Grant Program Information Session
The Government of Alberta is pleased to announce the opening of the third application intake period to the Alberta Jobs Now program on Friday, June 3, 2022. As the largest job training program in Alberta’s history, employers can apply for funding to offset the cost of hiring and training Albertans in new or vacant positions. The Alberta Jobs Now program is a critical part of Alberta’s economic recovery by helping Albertans get back to work and gain the skills needed in today’s job market, and by supporting businesses to re-open and grow their workforce.
In addition to providing employers the chance to hire and train new employees, there is a higher-value grant for employers who hire Albertans who have been unemployed for at least 27 consecutive weeks: of 37.5 per cent of the new hire’s salary, up to $37,500 per employee. Employers who hire a person with a disability are eligible for the same higher-value grant.
