About the Program


The Ministry of Jobs, Economic Recovery and Innovation is investing $15 million in the Innovator Skills Initiative program, delivered through B.C.’s Crown agency. As part of this investment, the Innovator Skills Initiative program is being expanded to be more accessible and inclusive.

COVID-19 impacted businesses’ cash flow and reduced employment opportunities. The expansion of the Innovator Skills Initiative program makes it easier for businesses and workers to use the program. Over the coming months, the B.C. government will engage with stakeholder groups and industry to gather input on how the program can be more inclusive and easier to use.
