Canada Alberta JOB Grant

Training allows employees to learn new skills, improve existing ones, and increase productivity. The Canada- Alberta Job Grant is a training program that is driven by employers who apply on behalf of current or future employees and cover the training costs. The employers decide which employees will receive the training and what kind of training would they require. The goal of this program is to improve Albertans’ labor force participation by assisting them in developing the skills they need to obtain and keep their jobs. 

We at ThinkTech, as one of Calgary’s prominent digital companies, will be with you every step of the way, guiding you through the process – from the CAJG application to receiving the grant, and providing the training.
