Canada Alberta Job Grant

The Canada-Alberta Job Grant (CAJG) is a great way for employers to support and invest in their employees with training that meets current or future skill requirements.

Training criteria

For training to be eligible for CAJG funding, it 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. It may be undertaken on either a part-time or full-time basis.

Canada Alberta Job Grant

The CAJG is employer-driven which means employers decide what training is required and make the application for funding on behalf of employees.

Employers can get up to two-thirds of training costs reimbursed to a maximum of $10,000 per trainee. Eligible training costs include:

  • tuition fees
  • mandatory student fees
  • textbooks
  • software and other required materials
  • exam fees

Eligible programs and courses

SAIT offers an extensive selection of in-demand training programs and courses eligible for the Canada Alberta Job Grant (CAJG). We also provide group training options for organizations.
