LMDA – Governments of Canada and British Columbia sign job training deal

The Governments of Canada and British Columbia today announced that they have signed a Canada flagMemorandum of Understanding (MOU) that paves the way towards retooling an existing federal-provincial job training deal which will better-align training with jobs. The Honourable Pierre Poilievre, Minister of Employment and Social Development, and the Honourable Michelle Stilwell, Minister of Social Development and Social Innovation (British Columbia), today signed an MOU to direct officials to finalize the deal. This is the second job training deal to be signed between the federal government and provinces.

The Government of Canada transfers over $2 billion annually to the provinces and territories through the Labour Market Development Agreements (LMDAs) to provide skills training to active and former Employment Insurance clients and employment services to people who are unemployed.

Under the retooled deal, training will be better aligned with job opportunities to help the unemployed find available jobs sooner. Employers will have the opportunity for greater input on training to meet their needs, and an amended accountability framework will help ensure EI premium-payers are getting maximum value for premiums paid. In B.C., the majority of the funding will support employment programs and supports delivered through 84 WorkBC Employment Service Centres across the province.
