Government of Alberta Supports for Business
The Small and Medium Enterprise Relaunch Grant offers financial assistance to Alberta organizations (businesses, cooperatives and non-profits) that were ordered to close or curtail operations, and that experienced a revenue reduction of at least 30%, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
To support businesses affected by the public health measures introduced in April 2021, a spring 2021 application period opened April 23.
Eligible employers can get government funding to help employees and unemployed Albertans access training opportunities.
Changes are effective from February 18, 2021 until February 28, 2022.
- Eligible trainee now includes employed family members of eligible employers.
- Business owners (incorporated, unincorporated/sole-proprietor and partnerships) with 4 or fewer employees are now eligible to train themselves.
- Training is no longer required to be incremental.
