Re-Open Saskatchewan Training Subsidy Extended

Released on April 9, 2021

Today, the Government of Saskatchewan announced an extension of the Re-Open Saskatchewan Training Subsidy (RSTS) from March 31, 2021 to June 30, 2021.

"This program has been another important tool to support Saskatchewan businesses during the global COVID-19 pandemic," Immigration and Career Training Minister Jeremy Harrison said.  "With significant uptake to this point, the extension of this program will give more businesses the opportunity to access this program as we continue to work through the pandemic and economic recovery."

The RSTS was launched on June 18, 2020.  The program operates as a temporary training subsidy to provide businesses with financial support to train employees as they adjust to the impacts of the pandemic and safely align business activities with the Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan.  The RSTS reimburses eligible private-sector employers 100 per cent of employee training costs up to a maximum of $10,000 per business.

Employer response to the program has been positive.  From program inception to the end of March 2021, more than 1,000 applications and $4 million in RSTS-funded training have been approved.
