The program will be run through Skills Advance Ontario, which connects job seekers with the sector-specific employment and training, and employers with the services they need to recruit the right workers.
“This project shows how our government is partnering with local communities to address economic challenges and help more people find work in the trades,” said Monte McNaughton, Minister of Labour, Training and Skills Development.
“Many communities have been hit hard by the pandemic, and as we continue to reopen Ontario’s economy, effective training initiatives will be an essential part of our efforts to get everyone back on the job.
“By providing funding for this project in Georgina, we’re giving young people a chance to learn new skills and start careers in the skilled trades,” said Caroline Mulroney, York-Simcoe MPP and Minister of Transportation and Francophone Affairs. “This project will provide good jobs, spur economic development and provide affordable housing in our region.”
