  • The employer pays a minimum of one-third of the eligible training costs.
  • The minimum eligible cost per training, per fiscal is $250. Therefore, the government’s total contribution per training is $166.68 at minimum (2/3 of $250).
  • The maximum amount per employer, per region, per fiscal year is $25,000. The maximum amount is applied to the government’s contribution.
