Most people are surprised to learn that Canada gives out more funding and grants to businesses than just about any other country. But once they do know, they find it difficult to navigate the “red tape” of applying for the grant or even where to start. The first, and most difficult step, is to actually identify a grant where your business meets the required criteria. Join Lydia Sani and grant experts, Brian Cookson and Greta Bianchi who will share their insights into how to identify, apply for, and receive government funding for your training and development.

Topics to be covered:

  • An overview of grants in Canada
  • A review of specific grants for training, hiring and export.
  • Tips on how to identify and apply for government grants.
  • How to assess the probability of receiving a grant
