New Brunswick is investing $200,000 in a workplace learning pilot project designed to upgrade the essential skills of workers in small and medium-sized businesses.

Margaret-Ann Blaney, Training and Employment Development Minister, said the province wants to encourage more employers to invest in workplace training for the benefit of their employees and their workplace.

“This project aims to enhance many of the essential skills workers need today to meet the ever-changing demands of our knowledge-based economy,” said Blaney.
