More cash will be available to post-secondary institutions for skills development from the provincial government.

It was announced that $90M is going to be invested into the Skills Development Fund (SDF) for training projects that will increase the skills of workers and job seekers.

Applications for funding start Sept. 29, and will be open to anyone who is unemployed or underemployed and will prioritize programs helping people with prior involvement in the criminal justice system, at-risk youth, people with disabilities, Indigenous people, Ukrainian newcomers, and others facing barriers to employment.

There were two previous rounds of funding that aided 388 training projects, helping more than 393,000 people take the next step in their careers in in-demand industries.

The announcement now brings Ontario’s total investment in the Skills Development Fund to over $560 million.
