Stephanie Noel, Business Development Manager, Queen's IRC

Financial Assistance for Training Available Through Canada Job GrantNeed financial help to pay for Queen's IRC training programs? The Canada Job Grant, administered by each province, covers two-thirds of the cost of approved training, with the employer paying one-third. It is available to businesses across Canada to provide employees with training to upgrade skills or develop new skills.

The Canada Job Grant:

  • Provides up to $10,000 in government support per person for training costs.
  • Requires employers to contribute one-third of the total costs.
  • Requires training to be delivered by an eligible, third-party trainer.
  • May be used to support training costs for tuition fees or fees charged by training providers.

How to Apply

Looking Back on Spring 2015…
Stephanie Noel, Business Development Manager, Queen's IRC

Stephanie Noel After a long winter and short spring, I'm sure we are all ready for some summer fun with our family and friends. I would like to take a minute to thank all the sponsors, and the participants who attended programs this spring. Congratulations to those who have earned their certificates in Advanced Human Resources, Organization Development Fundamentals, Labour Relations and Advanced Labour Relations.

In addition to our open enrollment and custom programs this spring, we also held a one-day Summit to explore the changing world of work, including the changing nature of work, what organizations will need to be successful in the future, and the differences in the millennial generation. The 2015 Workplace in Motion Summit had an impressive line-up of guest speakers and facilitators, with over 100 human resources, organizational development, and labour relations practitioners attending. It was a great day, and it was wonderful to see many old friends and meet new ones as well.

Article Recap
This spring, we have released a number of articles, including several papers by past Queen's IRC Director, Dr. Carol Beatty. These papers are part of a book that Carol is writing on change management. Please take a few minutes to check out the following articles:
