Province raises the tuition cap for EI-funded training to $7,500

In the world of labour market information, very little constitutes “Breaking News”; but this certainly does! Unemployed British Columbians receiving services through the Employment Program of BC (EPBC) may now be eligible for up to a maximum of $7,500 in tuition funding available to help them access skills training. Previously, tuition support was capped at $4,000. The increased tuition support will be effective as of Nov. 19, 2012.

This is fantastic news, as the old cap was a major impediment to anyone who wanted to participate in a longer or more expensive training program but lacked the ability to contribute more.
