funding for training in ontario

The SDF Program (an EO initiative) launched in February 2021 as a response to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The SDF Program has continued to focus on investing in enhancements to training, workforce development, and program delivery for workers in Ontario. The SDF Program aims to ensure a resilient workforce by supporting access to the labour market and/or the retention and capacity building of workers in emerging and in-demand sectors and sectors experiencing labour market challenges.

Building on the success of the original Operating Stream of the SDF Program, the Government of Ontario has established the SDF Capital Stream to provide major capital investments to build new training centres, upgrade existing training centres or convert existing facilities into training centres with state-of-the-art design and technology. This includes facility renovations, retrofits, expansions, conversions, repairs and building construction. The SDF Capital Stream supports projects that enable education and skills development, enhance training capacity and delivery, and facilitate economic growth in emerging and in-demand sectors of Ontario’s economy and sectors experiencing labour
market challenges.

The design principles of the SDF Capital Stream support capital investment and the use of risk management strategies to ensure prudent use of public funding.

The following are SDF Capital Stream design principles:
  • Support capital investment applications that demonstrate due diligence, ensure cost effectiveness, complement the SDF Operating Stream and achieve measurable Outcomes.
  • Accountable use of public funds in the administration of funding to selected Recipients that meet eligibility requirements as Primary Applicants.
