Congratulations to the Canadian Federal & BC Provincial Government for supporting training for Small Business owners.  Why?  Because when you support entrepreneurs, innovators, and small business owners to be organized and profitable they are better able to create secure meaningful jobs, which in turn strengthens our economy.  This is a proven and powerful economic development strategy that is good for all Canadians.   We look forward to your continued support in the future.

The B.C. Employer Training Grant is open to explore for possible funding for training.    To learn more go to their site at https://www.workbc.ca/Employer-Resources/BC-Employer-Training-Grant.aspx.

The B.C. Employer Training Grant provides up to $8 million in funding for employers to support skills training for their current and new employees in the fiscal year 2018/2019.

What is the B.C. Employer Training Grant?

The B.C. Employer Training Grant (ETG) assists British Columbian employers with employee training.  The cost is shared between the employer and the government.  The goal is to help employers, including small business owners create and sustain jobs in the Province.  Work skills development leads to greater economic development and is good for all British Columbians.

Why training?

Statistically 80% of all small businesses will fail within the first 5 years of operation. The impact on families and communities can be devastating. When business owners invest in training their success rate significantly improves. This results in greater job security for employees and a stronger BC Economy.
