Canada Job Grant / Let us determine where cuts will be made says the provinces

Provincial labour ministers will send a counter-proposal to the federal govenment this week aimed at supporting a new Canada Job Grant while preserving training programs aimed at vulnerable Canadians.

After a Tuesday meeting by phone, labour ministers agreed on the details of a counter-proposal that is expected to be sent to federal Employment Minister Jason Kenney.

In an interview, Ontario Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities Brad Duguid said the provinces accept that they will see a cut of roughly $300-million in transfer payments from Ottawa, but they want changes in terms of which transfers are reduced…

Mr. Duguid said provinces should have a say on which transfers are cut, suggesting a preference that they come from a roughly $2-billion-a-year fund called Labour Market Development Agreements that help train people who do qualify for EI.
