Intake 2 for the 2023/24 Canada-Manitoba Job Grant is now closed! We are no longer accepting applications.


Due to the high volume of applications received for the program, the application intake may close quickly.

Applications MUST be submitted using the latest version of the CMJG application. The application can be downloaded from the link below. Applications submitted on prior versions will not be accepted.

Applications MUST be submitted by the applicant. Applications submitted by another organization on behalf of the business identified in the application will be deemed ineligible.

The Job Grant will contribute up to 75% of eligible training costs for small employers – those with 100 or fewer employees – and up to 50% for companies with 101 or more employees.

CMJG payments are made once all training has been completed and reporting requirements are met. Advance payments are not available.

The CMJG application is a large Excel spreadsheet and may take time to open.
