We will help Canadians get the training they need to find and keep good jobs.
In a changing economy, Canadians need more opportunities to improve their skills and upgrade their credentials. We will make it easier for adults to access training programs by increasing investment in skills training.
To help those receiving Employment Insurance get the training they need to rejoin the workforce, we will invest $500 million more each year in provincial and territorial Labour Market Development Agreements.
To help those who do not qualify for Employment Insurance or are not currently employed, we will invest an additional $200 million in training programs led by the provinces and territories.
We will also invest $50 million to renew and expand funding to the Aboriginal Skills and Employment Training Strategy, and provide $25 million each year for training facilities, delivered in partnership with labour unions.
We will work with employers and workers to determine an appropriate apprenticeship ratio for all federal infrastructure projects.
Our total investment of an additional $775 million per year for job and skills training will help Canadians get the training they need to find and keep good jobs.
