Skills training in northern Saskatchewan got a financial boost from the provincial and federal governments this week.

Job Horizons, a program that helps northern Aboriginals get jobs in the oil sands industry, will get an additional $755,000 in funding.

"The Job Horizons program empowers northerners with the tools they need to find better jobs in one of Canada's fastest-growing sectors," said Minister of National Revenue Carol Skelton.
