Saskatchewan Announces $4.38 Million for Skills Training Programs

Released on November 29, 2021

Funding For More Than 100 New Seats in Key, High-Demand Training Programs

Today, the Government of Saskatchewan announced the funding of approximately $4.38 million for Saskatchewan Apprenticeship and Trade Certification Commission (SATCC) and several other training institutions to deliver skills training programs to help continuing to grow a skilled workforce in Saskatchewan.

This funding will allow these institutions to expand their skills training programs in the construction, welding, and health care sectors to help meet the labour needs of businesses.  It also supports key actions of the Saskatchewan Growth Plan to ensure under-represented groups are enabled to participate in the economy.

"Saskatchewan is making significant investments in training our provincial workforce as we enter a period of strong growth coming out of the pandemic," Immigration and Career Training Minister Jeremy Harrison said. "This funding will prioritize training for individuals who are under-represented in the workforce, it will promote a more diverse and inclusive workforce, and it will grow the number of skilled workers in high-demand occupations in communities across Saskatchewan." 

Several of these new training opportunities will be targeted at Indigenous individuals and will be delivered through partnerships between training institutions and the communities.  The expansion of the Tiny House Project is one such project, and will provide Indigenous apprentices with work experiences, while working towards their journeyperson certificates by building small, modular houses in their local communities. 

The training will be funded through the Canada-Saskatchewan Labour Market Transfer Agreements and provided by the SATCC and several other training institutions.  In addition to the Tiny House Project expansion, the skills programs include:

  • Welding
  • Health Care Aide/Continuing Care Aide
  • Medical Lab Assistant
  • Electrical Applied Certificate
  • Steel Stud and Drywall
  • Introduction to Scaffolding
