ON announces funding for skilled trades, apprentices, doctors

The Government of Ontario made several announcements related to funding for training apprentices, journeypersons, and doctors. ON announced over $13M in funding for organizations involved in training and upskilling in the skilled trades, such as the Ontario Electrical Industry Trust Fund, the National Electrical Trade Council, and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (Local 1687). The projects receiving funding include initiatives to increase apprenticeship registrations for in-demand trades, upskilling for 1,050 electricians across the province, and hands-on training opportunities. ON has also announced that it would be expanding its investment in pre-apprenticeship training investment to $28M and will soon finalize the second round of projects under the Skills Development Fund. “Ontario continues to face a generational labour shortage,” said Monte McNaughton, ON Minister of Labour, Training and Skills Development. “To build a stronger Ontario and grow our economy we need all hands on deck.” ON (1)| ON (2) Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
