The Ontario government is putting $18 million into the province’s apprenticeship training program.

Premier Dalton McGuinty said the money will help build the most highly skilled workforce in North America.

“We won’t let skills shortages hold our economy back,” said McGuinty. “The best workers will attract the best jobs with the highest pay, and our goal is to build the best workforce in North America.”
