Saskatchewan Invests $1.4 Million To Engage In Province’s Older Work Force

Released on March 3, 2020

The Government of Saskatchewan is moving forward with its 2020 Targeted Initiatives for Older Workers (TIOW) program in an effort to increase the engagement of older workers in Saskatchewan’s labour force.

The program is aimed at workers aged 55-64 who are currently unemployed and are legally entitled to work in Canada, but lack the skills needed to successfully secure employment.

“The TIOW program will increase the employability of older workers in Saskatchewan,” Immigration and Career Training Minister Jeremy Harrison said.  “These workers have decades of valuable experience and we want to ensure they have the skills needed to remain active and productive participants of Saskatchewan’s labour market for as long as they choose to do so.”

This is just one part of a larger effort by the province to increase the diversity and inclusiveness of its labour force.  Projects will be launched in Saskatoon, Prince Albert, Regina and Lloydminster.

It is anticipated that at least 186 participants will take part in the program this year.
