Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Job Grant Opportunity

Applications for Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Job Grant and Other Labour Market Programs Available Online

The Honourable Jason Kenney, Minister of Employment and Social Development, and the Honourable Kevin O’Brien, Minister of Advanced Education and Skills, today announced that Newfoundland and Labrador is now accepting employer applications for the Canada Job Grant and are encouraging employers to apply.

“Our Government’s top priorities are creating jobs, economic growth and long-term prosperity. The Canada Job Grant will help employers in Newfoundland and Labrador build the skilled workforce they need and help Newfoundlanders and Labradorians get the skills they need in today’s economy.”
– The Honourable Jason Kenney, Minister of Employment and Social Development

The Canada Job Grant is an innovative, employer-driven approach to help Newfoundlanders and Labradorians gain the skills and training they need to fill available jobs. It is designed to be flexible enough to meet the needs of businesses of all sizes, in all industries and regions. The Canada Job Grant represents a partnership between government and employers to train people for jobs.

“The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador remains focused on the province’s long-term prosperity by encouraging job creation for skilled labour. In 2013 there were over 31,000 publicly posted jobs in Newfoundland and Labrador. Having the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Job Grant available online is another important step toward the province meeting the growing demand for skilled labour.”
