Sault Benefits from Fund for Steel Sector Training ?


Province funds steel sector training



Provincial government funding is helping train western Ontario residents to work in the steel sector.

YMCA of Hamilton-Burlington-Brantford is receiving $1.9 million in funding to help more than 200 workers and unemployed Ontarians gain the skills and work experience. The training will take place in Hamilton, Niagara, Kitchener-Waterloo-Cambridge Region, and Brantford, a release says.

Our government is committed to opening up the steel sector to jobs and this funding will help the industry find the skilled workforce it needs to grow,” said David Piccini, parliamentary assistant to Minister of Training,Colleges and Universities Ross Romano. “The steel sector in Hamliton is important to Ontario’s economy and is an anchor for other industries including auto, energy and construction. That’s why we are helping the industry grow and create jobs.”
