Alberta Jobs Now program
- 1 min read
The Alberta Jobs Now program is providing up to $370 million to help private and non-profit businesses. This funding will reduce the costs of hiring and training unemployed or underemployed Albertans in new or vacant positions. Employers can apply for a grant to offset up to 25% of the salary or training costs of a new hire employee. Employers who hire persons with disabilities will receive a grant 1.5 times higher than the amount they would receive for other employees.
This funding will help employers re-open or expand their business operations. Employers can apply for up to 20 full-time new hires per intake period. Workers can let potential employers know that they can apply for the Alberta Jobs Now program to cover wages and training costs if they hire you.
