Talent City Vaughan provides micro-grants of up to $10,000 for eligible non-profit community and social service organizations delivering skills-development and training to Vaughan talent.

The program helps residents access and undertake opportunities to enhance skills and learn new ones, with an overall aim to support workforce development throughout the city of Vaughan. Proposed programs by community and social service organizations must provide job seekers or existing employees with new skills and training that either help to secure gainful employment or maintain or advance employment with a current employer. Programs can be offered in-person, virtually or via a hybrid model but must comply with current provincial health guidelines.

Community and social service organizations do not have to be Vaughan-based, but the services they provide for the program must target participation from Vaughan residents, employees and students directly. Interested applicants can learn more about the application process and program criteria and ask questions about their specific applications at an upcoming Talent City Vaughan information session.
