New provincial funding will help modernize equipment at local union training centres in London, Ont., to train more apprentices and skilled workers.

"We're moving Ontario forward together by expanding and upgrading training centres," said Steve Peters, MPP Elgin-Middlesex-London. "Investing in these training centres means more opportunity for apprentices, workers and journeypersons to train in our community."

The Ontario government gave $468,990 to the LIUNA Local 1059 regional training centre and $171,264 to the United Brotherhood of Carpenters Local 1946 training centre so the centres can add more equipment.
