Ontario Skills Development Fund - Applications Due Feb 28

The Skills Development Fund will support projects that will help relieve pandemic-induced barriers to hiring, training and retaining workers.


The ministry is seeking projects that will enable market-driven solutions and unlock the economic potential of skilled trades and broader workforce development initiatives to facilitate the province’s economic recovery.


Applications are now open for the Ontario government's new two-year $115 million Skills Development Fund. The fund, which will support workers and apprentices, is specifically designed to address the challenges brought on by COVID-19 and help reduce obstacles to hiring, training and retaining while preparing workers for the province's economic recovery.

The Skills Development Fund will accept applications from a wide range of employment and training organizations in Ontario, and the focus will be on:


  • giving laid-off workers immediate access to training supports or new jobs

  • improving the quality of training

  • reaching out to traditionally underrepresented groups

  • increasing apprentice registrations and completion

  • better serving local communities

  • supporting the talent needs of small businesses


Examples of projects from the fund could include: a digital career fair that allows employers to connect with job seekers impacted by COVID-19, mentorship programs and career counselling for apprentices while they are training on-the-job, the creation of training materials that teach employers how to accommodate employees who have disabilities, and making workspaces and equipment more accessible.


Applicants, including employers, apprenticeship training delivery agents, unions, post-secondary institutions, community organizations and others can now submit proposals beginning today, until February 28, 2021.
