Canada Alberta Job Grant

Have you heard about the Canada-Alberta Job Grant (CAJG)? It is a great way for your employer to support and invest in you, the employee, with training to meet your current or future skills requirements on-the-job.

Your Employer Can Save Up to Two-Thirds of the Cost

The CAJG program for Alberta organizations is employer-driven which means your employer decides what training is required and makes the application for training funding on your behalf.

Your employer can get up to two-thirds of your training costs reimbursed to a maximum of $10,000. Eligible training costs covered include: tuition fees or fees charged by the training provider; mandatory student fees; textbooks, software and other required materials; and examination fees.

This program is a great opportunity for you to advocate for the training you need. Start the conversation with your employer with this handy request for-training letter template.

Training Criteria

For your training to be eligible for CAJG funding, the training must:

  • Be at least 21 hours in length and delivered by a third-party trainer (like SAIT)
  • Be incremental in that it does not replace prior training investments or regular operational training
  • Be completed within 52 weeks of training program start date
  • Result in some sort of credential (record of completion, certificate, grade, etc.) 
  • Start within six months after receiving approval

The location, method of delivery and structure of the eligible training is flexible. Training can be delivered online, on-site or in a classroom, and it may be undertaken on either a part-time or full-time basis.
