Helping workers grow their skills for a low-carbon economy

Our workforce is leading the transition toward a greener and more sustainable future. We’re taking action to ensure workers and employers from coast to coast to coast have the skills and resources to thrive in the economy of today and tomorrow.

That’s why we’ve launched the Sustainable Jobs Training Fund (SJTF), an open call for proposals that will provide support projects that help workers upgrade or gain new skills for jobs in the low-carbon economy. This fund will allocate up to $99.1 million for projects in the next four years, with each project ranging from $8 million to $15 million. Eligible projects for the SJTF must focus on one of the three following areas:

  • Low-carbon energy and carbon management, including energy-related sectors such as hydrogen, geothermal, wind and solar as well as jobs in carbon management, such as carbon capture, utilization and storage.
  • Green buildings and retrofits, involving the installation of low-carbon heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment (including heat pumps), energy efficient components, or renewable energy systems.
  • Electric vehicle maintenance and charging infrastructure, contributing to the country’s transition to electric vehicles with a focus on the repair and maintenance of electric vehicles, as well as charging infrastructure nationally.

Later this year, our government will launch a second call for proposals under the Canadian Apprenticeship Strategy, which will support thousands of more workers in upgrading and gaining new skills.

I encourage all eligible organizations to learn more and apply.

The deadline to apply for the SJTF is May 15, 2024.
