Grain Millers Job Grant

The Canada-Saskatchewan Job Grant is now accepting applications from eligible employers, pending available funding.

The Canada-Saskatchewan Job Grant is an employer-driven program that:

  • Helps businesses and non-profit organizations train new or existing employees for available jobs; and
  • Provides more opportunities for unemployed and underemployed workers to receive training.

Through the program, the employer contributes one-third of the training cost, while the federal and provincial governments contribute the remaining two-thirds.


1. Benefits


  • Select the trainees and the training program.
  • Receive reimbursement for two-thirds of eligible training costs.
  • Employ the trainee at the end of training.

Employers can make multiple grant applications to a maximum of $100,000 per fiscal year, and up to $10,000 per individual trainee.

The minimum amount per application is $1,000. Employers may work with training providers to combine courses into customized programs that meet their training needs.

Payment is made to approved employers that enter into a training agreement with the government upon completion of final reporting, including verification of actual expenditures.
