For Employers applying for training
Effective April 1, 2017, a new CJG administration system will be available and must be used for applications starting Intake 2 and beyond. Applications for Intake 1 will continue to be paper-based using the PDF forms.
Starting April 1, employers will be able to access the system with their BCeID, create an organizational profile and draft applications for training for Intake 2. Applications can be submitted starting May 1, 2017 when Intake 2 opens. NOTE: The new Canada-BC Job Grant application system works best using the most recent version of Chrome or Firefox.
To access this new system, applicants will require a Business BCeID account. While it takes 15 minutes to complete the application process for a BCeID, it can take up to 3 weeks to receive your BCeID. If you already have a BCeID, you do not need to do anything further. If you do not have a BCeID, please ensure you apply as early as possible so you can create your organizational profile starting April 1, 2017 and apply for Intake 2 starting May 1, 2017. For information and instructions on registration for BCeID, please click on the link: https://www.bceid.ca/register/
The new CJG administration system will streamline the application process for employers by creating an electronic platform for the submission of applications, agreements and claims. Employers will be able to create, copy, and save applications.
Applications as an Organizations Acting on Behalf of Employers will continue to be accepted through email/PDF forms until an update to the system is released.
The Employer needs to complete the CJG Application form. This must be done on the computer, hand written forms will not be accepted. All questions must be answered. Note: The designated signing authority cannot sign off on behalf of the Employer if the training is for themselves.
Each Employer signs their application, and then provides the Participant Information Form to the training participants.
The Employer then submits the application form to ASPECT for review and then submission to the Ministry. If they are using a Private Trainer, all necessary training provider information must be submitted at that time. The Ministry reviews and will decide eligibility of private training providers case by case.
Training Participants fill out the Participant Information Form, sign and date them. They will then be uploaded to a secure CJG site. These forms cannot be filled in by hand and all questions must be answered.
Application will not be assessed by the Ministry until all Participant Information Forms have been submitted.
After all necessary documentation has been received a CJG application number will be assigned, and the Employer will be notified of a decision within 60 business days. Recommend that Employers keep a record of the CJG number to allow for tracking and questions.
If the application is approved, the Ministry will send a Reimbursement Claim package as well as an Agreement to the Employer. The Employer must agree to the terms and conditions of the grant, and then return the signed copy.
Reimbursement claims may be submitted after training starts.
