Building Skills Together: A Report from Provincial and Territorial Labour Market Ministers (2013)

The authors of this report call on Canada’s federal government to work with the provinces and territories to ensure that labour market funding agreements support programs that work for all regions and labour markets across the country.

To date, the discussion of the renewal of the Labour Market Agreement, including the proposed Canada Job Grant, has been narrowly focused and not sufficiently inclusive, the authors say. The federal government has consulted with a small group of stakeholders, but has not consulted with provinces and territories, or with employers or training providers in northern Canada to ensure that the labour market funding agreements serve the unique needs of workers and employers in that region.

Provinces and territories are engaging with community groups, service providers, employers, industry organizations, the non-profit sector, and other interested groups to identify the best ways to support employment and training programs.

The authors have also included examples of various provincial and territorial initiatives aimed at developing skills, meeting employer needs, and getting more people into the workforce.
