Coming soon: A new training section on Job Bank
As part of the Government of Canada’s ongoing effort to build a resilient workforce equipped with the skills needed to succeed in the labour market of tomorrow, Job Bank is developing a new section of its website where Canadians will be able to find learning and training opportunities.
What is Job Bank?
Job Bank is Canada's national employment service, which helps Canadians find work and plan their careers while making it easier for employers to recruit and hire across the country. More than 100,000 job seekers visit Job Bank's website every day, and it is used by over 200,000 registered employers.
What is the new training section on Job Bank and who is it for?
This new section of Job Bank's website will act as a national hub of information about micro-credentials and short duration, outcome-based courses offered by recognized learning institutions and training providers across the country.
This new section will be fully integrated as part of Job Bank's suite of career planning products, and workers will be able to use it to:
- Learn about what jobs are in demand and what skills they require.
- Complete an assessment of their training needs based on their career goals and current skills.
- Search relevant courses matching their training needs.
- Find available financial resources to help them pay for training.
Employers will also be able to use it to find opportunities to quickly reskill or upskill their employees to meet current or future business needs.
How can training providers and learning institutions contribute?
At this time, Job Bank is looking to collaborate with Canadian training providers and learning institutions to build a catalogue of micro-credentials and short-duration courses available in Canada.
To be eligible, your organization must be:
- a university, college or other educational institution providing courses at a post-secondary level in Canada; or
- a certified learning institution in Canada; or
- an organization that offers free courses and is registered with the Canada Revenue Agency.
Eligible organizations are invited to register and share information about some of the courses they would like to add to Job Bank's catalogue.
