OTTAWA, May 26, 2014 /CNW/ - The Honourable Jason Kenney, Minister of Employment and Social Development, spoke today at the Association of Canadian Community Colleges' annual conference. Minister Kenney took the opportunity to highlight the important role that colleges play in producing job-ready graduates who are needed to help fill job vacancies in the skilled trades and other in-demand occupations. He underscored that colleges are equipping students with the right skills to meet today's labour market demands, helping them to enter the workforce more quickly.
Minister Kenney spoke about Government of Canada initiatives designed to ensure Canadians have the skills in demand in today's economy, including the Canada Job Grant, the Canada Apprentice Loan, and support for apprenticeship training.
"Our government's top priorities are creating jobs, economic growth and
long-term prosperity. Community colleges help equip Canadians with the
right education, skills and training they need to find good jobs that
are in demand in today's economy. Our government is helping Canadians
get the skills they need to fill these jobs through measures like the
Canada Job Grant, the Canada Apprentice Loan and support for Canadians
in apprenticeship training."
