PCA welcomes Ontario signing of Canada Job Grant agreement in principle
March 6, 2014 by STAFF REPORT
The Progressive Contractors Association of Canada (PCA) approves the Government of Ontario and the Government of Canada’s announcement that the province of Ontario has signed an agreement in principle on the Canada Job Grant.
PCA has been a staunch supporter of the Canada Job Grant since it was first announced. PCA says Ontario construction businesses have long identified skills shortages and mismatches across several key trades and sectors and a solution was needed. This agreement brings workers a step closer to getting the training they need for jobs that employers need to fill, according to the PCA.
“This agreement is good news for Ontario workers. It is also good news for our economy,” said Sean Reid, PCA’s vice-president, Federal and Ontario. “We look forward to working with Minister Duguid to ensure that the Canada Job Grant is equally accessible to all Ontario employers with minimal administrative burden.”
