Province Announces $1.9 Million Funding For Trades And Skills Centres In Regina And Saskatoon

Released on September 22, 2020

Today, the Government of Saskatchewan announced annual funding of $1.9 million to the Regina and Saskatoon Trades and Skills Centre.  Each centre will receive $961,000 to cover program delivery and administration costs.  The centres deliver short-term trades and skills training that leads to entry-level jobs in industries where workers are in high demand.

“The Trades and Skills Centres in Regina and Saskatoon provide targeted and important programs based on the needs of the local labour markets,” Immigration and Career Training Minister Jeremy Harrison said.  “By matching employers who have job openings in their business with qualified graduates from the program, the centres play a valuable role in filling vacant labour market positions in our two largest cities.”

“More than ever, people are looking for opportunities to learn skills that will make them employable and allow them to support their families,” Regina Trades and Skills Centre Executive Director Brian Shankowsky said.  “And thanks to the generous support of the Government of Saskatchewan, Regina Trades and Skills Centre can continue doing just that.”

“This funding will help Saskatoon Trades and Skills Centre deliver quick skill programs to meet employers needs and to help grow the economy of Saskatchewan,” Saskatoon Trades and Skills Centre Executive Director Donavon Elliott said.  “Through the funding we received already, we have delivered 227 programs and trained more than 3,200 students.”

The Regina Trades and Skills Centre delivers short-term trades and skills training that leads to entry-level jobs in industries where workers are in high demand, and work with industry to develop and deliver relevant and recognized programs that are responsive to industry needs for trained and skilled workers.

The Saskatoon Trades and Skills Centre is a not-for-profit organization that helps to equip employers with skilled workers and equip adults with the skills for jobs they need to start a rewarding career.
