What is the StrongerBC future skills grant program?

The StrongerBC future skills grant provides funding to British Columbians aged 19 years or older – regardless of financial need – and covers up to $3,500 in eligible short-term skills training at public post-secondary institutions.

Through the StrongerBC future skills grant, the program has already registered learners in over 11,300 seats across the province, helping them access high-quality and relevant training opportunities.  

As jobs transform and rapid training is required, people will be able to increase their skills, succeed in their current jobs, get better paid jobs, adapt to current and future labour market conditions and be better equipped for the new global economy.

For businesses, this means that over the next three years, there will be thousands of newly trained workers and existing workers with enhanced skills ready to fill in-demand positions.

What's new: Future Learners

The government is committed to providing high-quality and relevant learning opportunities for learners and employers. That is why the government will be refreshing the list of programs funded under the StrongerBC future skills grant for 2024/2025. 

This will allow the government to offer more diverse and updated skills training options for people living in British Columbia who want to access well-paid, high opportunity occupations. Thank you for your interest and enthusiasm in the StrongerBC future skills grant program.

Please stay tuned for the refreshed list of program offerings.
