The JobShop

Who is eligible for training funding?

We can assist eligible individuals with training when they cannot find work with their current skills. This is demonstrated through a documented job search. The amount of assistance is negotiated based on financial need and other eligibility criteria.

Training funding may be available for:
EI Eligible Clients – those who have an active claim or had an EI benefit period that ended within the last 60 months. (Some provinces have their own Maternity/Parental benefit plans. These may also qualify. See your Case Manager for more details.)
BCEA clients
Clients with disabitities

EI clients on special benefits (Sick, Maternity, Paternity and Compassionate Care) are normally not eligible for training.
People who have already started school are not eligible.
