Employment Services

Hiring Incentives

This Employment Ontario service is funded in part by the Government of Canada and the Government of Ontario.


Employers may be eligible for financial incentives to offset some of the costs of providing on-the-job training and work experience. Connect with a Job Developer today by calling 519-371-9222 (Owen Sound) or 519-364-3163 (Hanover)

Canada-Ontario Job Grant

The Canada-Ontario Job Grant (COJG) provides an opportunity for employers to invest in their workforce, with help from the government. COJG will provide direct financial support to individual employers who wish to purchase training for their employees. It is available to small, medium and large businesses with a plan to deliver short-term training to existing and new employees.


Youth Job Connection

Youth Job Connection provides paid pre-employment training, job opportunities and mentorship to youth aged 15-29. As an employer you have the opportunity to provide valuable work experience to youth in your community while receiving a financial incentive to help cover the costs of wages and training.
