Build in Canada Innovation Program Challenge initiative

The Build in Canada Innovation Program (BCIP) has launched its new Challenge initiative. Building on its first seven-years of success the program is piloting a new “Challenge Call for Proposals” (CFP) where federal government departments will solicit innovative solutions to their unique challenges. The introduction of BCIP’s Challenge CFP represents a natural evolution of the program. It will be launched in addition to the program’s existing open CFP, and will provide more opportunities for innovative Canadian companies to land their first sale with the Government of Canada.

Canada-Manitoba Job Grant Applications are now being accepted.

Looking to kick-start a training program that will help your employees obtain the specialized skills for your business?

The Canada-Manitoba Job Grant is an employer-driven approach to help Manitobans gain the skills they need to fill available jobs and to help employers develop the skills of their existing workers to meet the requirements of their present job, or to move into a better job. Eligible employers may apply for up to $10,000 for each individual worker to assist with training costs. Employers that receive funding under the Canada-Manitoba Job Grant must contribute a minimum of one-third of the eligible training costs. With the maximum government contribution of $10,000, this means that up to $15,000 is available, per person, for eligible training costs.
