Submission Regarding the Canada Jobs Grant

    This submission to Diane Finley, Minister of Human Resources and Skills Development, provides the OCC’s perspective on the proposed Canada Job Grant (CJG), as described in the Government of Canada’s Economic Action Plan 2013.

    Ontario’s unemployment rate is 7.3%, above the national average of 7.1% unemployment. As such, we support the federal government’s efforts to work with employers to achieve Ontario’s labour market goals. We also agree that employers need to play a more active role in skills training.

    We also feel that a training program such as the CJG would have to be part of a comprehensive suite of employment and training supports that addresses the varied needs of employers and individuals in Ontario’s diverse labour market.
