Expanding Training Opportunities to More People


Doug Ford and the Ontario PC Party are helping people learn the skills they need to earner bigger paycheques

Today, Ontario is facing the largest labour shortage in a generation with over 300,000 jobs are going unfilled. That’s why our PC government is working for workers by launching Better Jobs Ontario. 

This new program is for anyone looking to train for in-demand work by paying up to $28,000 for short duration job-specific training. This includes those on social assistance, those who are self-employed, gig workers, youth and newcomers. Expanding on the current Second Career program, more applicants will now be eligible for up to $500 per week in financial support for basic living expenses

“To build a stronger Ontario, we need all hands on deck. Our government is on a mission to help everyday people earn bigger paycheques and we’re leaving nobody behind,” said Monte McNaughton, MPP for Lambton-Kent-Middlesex and Minister of Labour, Training and Skills Development. “Whether you are a young person struggling to break into the job market, a gig worker hustling to make ends meet, or unemployed and on social assistance, our government is here to give you a hand up to building a better life and stronger province for us all.”

Doug Ford and the Ontario PC Party are getting it done by helping people learn the skills they need to earn bigger paycheques and start life-long careers that provide for them and their families.
