Through these agreements, the government is providing Canadians with more opportunities to improve their skills, gain experience or get help starting their own businesses. Agreements also involve more support, such as employment counselling, to help Canadians plan their careers. Today, Scott Brison, President of Canada`s Department of Finance, announced on behalf of Minister of Honour Patty Hajdu, Canada`s Minister of Employment, Labour Development and Labour, that the governments of Canada and Nova Scotia have signed agreements that will allow Canada to allocate more than $700 million to Nova Scotia over six years to invest in Nova Scotia workers. These agreements represent an increase in appropriations of more than $70 million over this period compared to previous funding levels. This increase means that over the past six years, an estimated 17,000 additional neo-echo workers will benefit. With these new agreements, the Canadian government is ensuring that these programs benefit more people than before, including people from groups that are typically under-represented in our staff, such as people with disabilities, women and Aboriginal people. 5.5 Unless required or approved in writing by the other party and, pursuant to Section 5.2 of this agreement, Canada may not disclose to a third party information received from Nova Scotia under that agreement, unless there is a written agreement between Canada and the third party that imposes third-party obligations on its obligations to Canada under this agreement. protection of this information. The Nova Scotia Office of Immigration Labour Market Integration Program helps organizations provide services to immigrants (including refugees) to increase labour market participation, improve skills development programs, facilitate labour mobility and provide information on labour market policy choices.
The results are important. This is why these agreements involve an obligation to measure performance. This means that Canada and Nova Scotia will be able to measure how programs increase people`s incomes, help them get time-long jobs, and remove barriers for under-represented groups such as Aboriginal people, people with disabilities and women. The Canadian government will report to Canadians on the impact of these programs so that they are transparent and can be continually improved. 40. This agreement replaces the Canada-Nova Scotia agreement and the Canada-Nova Scotia labour market agreement for persons with disabilities when it came into force. On that day, those agreements will be revoked. As innovation and technology continue to change our lives and work, nova Scotians and Canada face new challenges and opportunities. That is why it is more important than ever to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to benefit from an innovative economy – which means that both workers and the unemployed have the opportunity to acquire the skills they need for today`s jobs and for the jobs of tomorrow. Canada has labour market transfer agreements with provinces and territories known as the Labour Market Agreements for Persons with Disabilities, the European Employment Fund agreements and the Targeted Initiative for Older Workers Agreements. The One Journey initiative is a partnership between work and continuing education, industry and community. This program provides skills and employment opportunities for the unemployed or under-employed unemployed who are seeing a labour shortage in the industry.
Under Section 41 of the DESDA, the Minister may enter into agreements to obtain information regarding the management or delivery of a program with provincial governments.
