Labour Market Agreements are funding agreements between Canada and Saskatchewan that provide support to people who are having trouble entering or re-entering the job market. Programs help residents who are unemployed, or workers who lack basic education and skills, get the training they need to find and keep good jobs.
There are currently two Labour Market Transfer Agreements between Canada and Saskatchewan:
- Workforce Development Agreement provides federal funding to the province to design, deliver and implement employment and training programming to support labour market participation.
- Canada-Saskatchewan Labour Market Development Agreement (LMDA) provides federal funding to the province to deliver programs and services for those who are eligible for benefits under the Employment Insurance Act.
