Get all your Safety Training through the Grant now!
The Alberta government is temporarily expanding eligibility to the Canada-Alberta Job Grant (CAJG) to help businesses access the training they need. The expansion is effective until February 28, 2022.
Expanded eligibility includes:
- Funding mandatory training (Safety Training included). Use the CAJG to fund courses or training that is required for a job.
- Allowing employers to train employed family members. Enables family-owned businesses to access training funds.
- Allowing some business owners to receive funding to train themselves. Supports entrepreneurs to expand their skill set to grow or pivot their business.
- In addition, other changes will make the application process more efficient. For example, an employee’s training can start as soon as government receives an application, rather than having to wait for the application to be approved. This allows businesses to begin training sooner if required.
Learn more about the program and apply online at https://www.alberta.ca/canada-
Permanent Operational Program Changes:
- Training can start once the application is received by the CAJG.
- Employers may pay for training at any time; however, the training cannot start until all trainee(s) have signed the application and the application is received by the CAJG.
- Course information is no longer required to be listed on the training
- Customized training is eligible.
Revised list of eligible and ineligible training cost. Please see the Applicant Guide for the full list.

The Safety Buzz Campus team strive's to offer our students a comfortable learning atmosphere, so they can enter the workforce with confidence, or simply refresh their skills and knowledge to renew expired certificates. All of our instructors are fully certified and are dedicated to helping students succeed. Join us for training, come for the fun & relaxed atmosphere.
