Canada-Alberta labour market agreements help develop a skilled workforce, and support Albertans in finding and maintaining employment.
Canada-Alberta Job Fund
The Canada-Alberta Job Fund is a federal-provincial agreement designed to help equip Canadians with the skills and training they need to fill available jobs. The six-year agreement ensures greater employer involvement in training decisions.
A cornerstone of this agreement is the Canada-Alberta Job Grant. Alberta employers can access funding through this grant to deliver skills training for current and future workers. To learn more or to apply to the program, visit albertacanada.com/jobgrant.
Canada-Alberta Labour Market Development Agreement (LMDA)
To help unemployed Albertans find work and to develop a skilled workforce that meets current and emerging needs of employers, the Government of Canada has entered into agreements (also called Labour Market Development Agreements) with provinces and territories.
The Canada-Alberta Agreement on Labour Market Development is the federal-provincial agreement which makes Alberta’s delivery of Employment Insurance training benefits, work search and career planning services possible.
Through this agreement, funding from the EI Account enables Alberta to design, deliver and manage skills and employment programs for unemployed Canadians, particularly for those who are eligible for Employment Insurance benefits.
