Government Funding For Canadian Manufacturers; up to $8000

We’ve heard from manufacturers across the country and with the new Future Ready program, training is now simpler and more flexible for your team. The program equips Canadian manufacturers with the tools and funding to maximize automation, train existing workers, and bring new workers into Canada’s manufacturing workforce.

After completing the first one-hour online training module and a skills-assessment, manufacturers can qualify to receive government funding, covering up to 80% of the cost for specialized employee training programs of their choice, up to a maximum of $8,000 per company.

Not sure if your team qualifies? Learn more about the Future Ready program and speak with one of our training and upskilling experts at NGen.
