Federal/Provincial/Territorial Consultations on Labour Market Transfer Agreements

Following the 2016 federal budget announcement of funding increases for Labour Market Transfer Agreements (LMTAs), the Forum of Labour Market Ministers in consultation with provinces and territories launched broad-based stakeholder consultations.  The objective of the consultations was to hear from Canadians to ensure the existing Agreements are responding effectively to local labour market priorities.
