The Province of Manitoba has launched a new program called Retrain Manitoba!

This grant program will reimburse employers who are seeking to invest in retraining their existing, re-hired, or newly hired staff.

Businesses are eligible to apply immediately for up to $2,500 per employee to a maximum of $75,000 per company.

All applications are processed on a first-come, first-serve basis, to be submitted by March 31, 2022.

Program Details:

  • Employers who have already paid for courses with start dates from Apr. 1, 2021, to Aug. 31, 2022, are eligible to apply.
  • Employers do not have to pay for the courses directly, professional development reimbursements to an employee are still eligible, as long as the course start date is after April 1, 2021, and they show evidence of the course and payment.
  • Any Manitoba-based active and registered business with a valid business number is eligible to apply.
  • Any employees who are currently working and living in Manitoba, while being legally entitled to work in Canada are eligible.
  • Employees who are also shareholders are eligible.
  • There is no limit on businesses for how many course applications they submit, as long as they provide payment receipts for course registrations.
  • Funding can be applied to a range of courses including in-person, online, and industry-recognized courses.
  • Tuition fees, mandatory participant fees, course examination fees, and fees charged by an external training provider are all eligible for funding.

This is a great opportunity amidst the pandemic challenges, to take part in these resources and advance the growth and development of your workforce!
