Did you know that Canada has the second largest non-profit sector in the world?
The non-profit sector is a significant economic force in Canada – accounting for 6.8 percent of the nation’s gross domestic product (GDP) and employing 12% of Canada’s population (over 2 million full-time workers).
Though the non-profit sector plays an important role in the Canadian economy, non-profit organizations continue to face challenges. Obtaining funding has become more competitive and unpredictable while the number of donors and volunteers are declining.
In order to remain viable, non-profit organizations recognize the need to attract talented workers, expand technological capabilities, develop leadership skills, encourage innovation, and focus on strategic planning, marketing and customer service.
But money is scarce and training seems out of reach.
The government understands the difficulties that non-profit organizations face. Canada and Ontario have allocated funding to help sustain and grow your organization. Through the Canada-Ontario Job Grant, 2/3 of the cost of training your employees will be reimbursed up to $10,000 per-person. If you have less than 50 employees and cover the cost of wages while training, up to 5/6 may be reimbursed.
This is a golden opportunity to improve specific skills of your employees, learn the latest trends in your sector, focus on proposal writing, marketing, social media, web development, volunteer management, attracting donors, etc.
You choose who you will train, who the trainer will be (eligible third party) and what type of training is required.
There has never been a government paid training incentive as generous as the Canada-Ontario Job Grant.
