Premiers Support Renewal of Labour Market Agreements
Provincial and territorial Labour Market Ministers met recently on behalf of Canada's Premiers to discuss skills training and the renewal of Labour Market Agreements that are set to expire across Canada in April 2014. Recently, they issued a joint news release urging the federal government to reconsider proposed changes to skills training and labour market funding in favour of the Canada Job Grant.
The Ministers have also announced release of a report entitled, Building Skills Together, detailing the critical importance of skills and training, the success of current programming under Labour Market Agreements and their concerns about the federal proposal to replace these agreements with the Canada Job Grant.
