Saskatchewan Job Seekers To Benefit From Career Training Investments

Released on March 9, 2020

The Government of Saskatchewan is investing $650,000 to help transition unemployed individuals to the workforce through Enhanced Career Bridging programs.  This funding will allow up to 160 individuals to participate in opportunities in Prince Albert, Humboldt and Saskatoon.

“Enhanced Career Bridging programs align with the priorities identified in Saskatchewan’s Growth Plan and our government’s commitment to promote employment opportunities for under-represented job seekers,” Immigration and Career Training Minister Jeremy Harrison said.  “These individuals have valuable skills to contribute and we want to ensure they have every opportunity to succeed.”

The programs will be delivered by the Prince Albert Multicultural Council, Humboldt and District Community Services Inc., Saskatchewan Abilities Council Inc. and Saskatchewan Polytechnic.  Program participants come from groups that may be under-represented or facing barriers to employment in the Saskatchewan labour market, including Indigenous individuals, persons with disabilities, visible minorities and women.

Offering practical instruction, employability skills and work experience, the targeted programs are designed to respond to the unique needs of participants while addressing the relevant needs of employers, providing training that aids in obtaining quality jobs and building long-term careers.

As outlined in Saskatchewan’s Growth Plan, the Government of Saskatchewan is committed to developing the potential of Saskatchewan’s diverse population and providing people with education, training and employment opportunities that will help build a stronger Saskatchewan.
