Training must not exceed one year in duration and training institution eligibility is determined by individual provinces and territories. The following provinces are currently accepting employer applications for the Canada Job Grant: BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and PEI.
