Funding Skills

B.C. Employer Training Grant

Overview

CME can assist members to take advantage of the B.C. Employer Training Grant (ETG) which 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.

The goal of the ETG is to help both unemployed and employed British Columbians access the skills training they need to adapt to the changing requirements of jobs and the labour market while encouraging employer involvement in training of their employees.

ETG is not a CME administered initiative.

Why B.C. Employer Training Grant?

This program is designed to assist employers in providing skills training to new or current employees that will develop skills and certification, upgrade skills needed due to automation and enhance productivity.

Who Can Benefit?

Any B.C employers that wish to update, improve and provide skills training to current or new employees.

To find out more about eligibility requirements go to ETG.
