Skills development and training are key components in hiring and retaining employees. The programs listed here include tax credits, training activities, and a skills tool kit for employers.
Apprenticeship Training Tax Credit: This refundable tax credit helps corporations and unincorporated businesses employ apprentices in certain skilled trades during the first 36 months of an apprenticeship program. The Canada Revenue Agency administers the program on behalf of provinces through the federal income tax system.
Labour Market Agreement Program: Through these agreements, Government of Canada funding enables provinces and territories to design, deliver and manage skills and employment programs for unemployed Canadians, particularly for those who are eligible for Employment Insurance (EI) benefits.
