The Ontario government is investing $37 million into apprentice training, including $5 million to help foreign-trained workers become certified in the province.

“Our plan is to build an economy based on high skills and high standards,” said Mary Anne Chambers, Ontario’s Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities. “An important part of achieving that goal is strengthening our greatest competitive advantage: the skills and expertise of Ontario’s workers.”
