Are you between the ages of 20-29 years old?
The Information and Communications Technology Council (ICTC) is running a new government-funded program called Small Business Digitization Initiative (SBDI) where you have the opportunity to be:

2) Enrolled in a full-time 24-week training program to boost their skills. 12 weeks in class and 12 weeks with an employer.
The program features 24 weeks of full-time training, including an experiential work placement – where each participant is uniquely matched with a small business, applying in-class theory to solve a real business challenge, and strategizing and implementing smart digital business solutions with the goal of reducing operating costs, improving day to day operations, and/or providing customers with better experiences. Youth will attain transferable workplace skills in project management; data analytics and intelligence; entrepreneurship; enterprise resource planning (ERP) (including principles of sales and marketing and accounting) and will strategically evaluate business operations to empower companies by implementing technology solutions.
