Financial support available to Alberta organizations hiring new employees

If you’re looking for new hires in Alberta, you may be eligible for funding to support their salary or training costs.

In an effort to get Albertans back to work, a federal-provincial investment is providing $370 million to help businesses hire and train unemployed or underemployed Albertans as part of the Alberta Jobs Now program.

Private sector businesses, as well as non-profit organizations can apply for grants to offset salary or training costs, or both, equal to 25% of the new hire’s salary (up to $25,000 per employee) or 37.5% of the new hire’s salary for an employee with a disability (up to $37,500 per employee).

There will be three intakes for applications:

  • First intake – May 20 to August 31, 2021
  • Second intake – September 15 to December 31, 2021
  • Third intake – will be announced at a later date

To be eligible, an organization must be a private business or partnership, sole proprietorship, or non-profit organization, and be hiring for a position of at least 52 weeks.

For more information on the program (including eligibility requirements of both employers and employees), check out: Alberta Jobs Now program | Alberta.ca, and read the Alberta Jobs Now Program Application Guidelines.
