This tier of the GROW Program aims to develop and advance 50 current employees in the Landscape and Horticulture industry from November 2020 to March 2021. Employers will have the opportunity to identify 1-2 employees per firm who possess potential qualities of being a remarkable supervisor. Employers will nominate their incumbent worker(s) and once accepted into the program, will help to identify individual key goals, and support their employees in transferring their new knowledge and skills into practice while at work.
At no cost to employer or employees, this program is funded in part by the Government of Canada and the Government of Ontario.

The employer is able to have a representative from the company be the support contact but ultimately the employer must be able to sign off on the application.
The Incumbent Worker Program will be delivered and facilitated over Zoom and Google Classrooms.
Training will be provided on how to use both platforms.
Access to reliable internet and a computer is required for participation in the program.
Participants are responsible for completing all training courses and should contact their instructor to make alternative arrangements (if required).
