Ontario Training More Workers for in Demand Careers.

August 3rd 2022, Premier Doug Ford was joined by Monte McNaughton, Minister of Labour, Immigration, Training, and Skills Development, and Matt Rae, MPP for Perth-Wellington, to announce that government of Ontario is working for workers by investing $5 million to provide free training to 500 people from underrepresented groups to prepare them for well-paying jobs in the province’s thriving automotive manufacturing sector.

This program will provide participants with the necessary skills for rewarding, well-paying careers in machine operation, assembly, quality control, and logistics. Led by the Automotive Parts Manufacturers Association (APMA), training includes three-month paid job placements through APMA’s network of more than 300 small and medium-sized businesses. After completing the program, each participant will receive a job offer from a local employer. The project is underway and runs until March 31, 2023. Individuals and employers interested in the program can apply through APMA’s website.
