The COJG covers anywhere from 1/2 to 5/6 of the total training costs depending upon whether the employer has less than 100 or 100 or more employees. The COJG will provide up to a maximum of $10,000 in government support per person for training costs. In some situations, where a small employer is training and hiring an unemployed individual, the employer may be eligible for up to $15,000, with no minimum contribution on the employer's behalf.
