Funding Assistance

There are several sources of funding available for those who need assistance with course fees.

1. Hostelling International Grant (through the Bow Valley Learning Council). For more information, visit the BCCEC website.

2. Job Resource Centres:
Funding may be available through community Employment Centres for people who are unemployed or underemployed. Those with an prospective employer can receive upwards of 90% of their course fees covered.

3. Canada Job Grant:
The Canada-Alberta Job Grant (CAJG) is an employer-driven program that helps employers invest in training for current and future employees.

The goal of the CAJG is to increase participation of Albertans in the labour force by helping them develop the skills they need to find and keep a job. The CAJG is also an opportunity for employers to invest in training that is better aligned to job opportunities.

4. BC Employer Training Grant:
The B.C. Employer Training Grant provides funding to small, medium and large enterprises to support skills training for their workforces, including prospective new hires.

The intent of this program is to help British Columbians access the skills training required to adapt to the labour market’s changing job requirements, while also encouraging employer involvement in skills training.
