Employee training supports for agri-businesses
“To all Albertans interested in work, jobs in the agriculture sector are dynamic, employ a range of skillsets and help to support your communities. These investments, provided by both levels of Government, will give Albertans the opportunity to train and transition into these rewarding jobs.”
- The Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, federal Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food
“Alberta’s agriculture and food sector rely on thousands of people working every day to help keep food on our tables. As we see record high unemployment in Alberta due to a global economic slowdown and COVID-19, we need to ensure unemployed Albertans have the opportunity for domestic jobs insead of hiring workers from overseas.”
- Devin Dreeshen, Minister of Agriculture and Forestry
“Training will provide Albertans with the skills they need to find work and support the province’s agriculture employers. This new program will support thousands of new job opportunities so Albertans can get back to work.”
- Jason Copping, Minister of Labour and Immigration
Program support is targeted to agricultural, meat processing and horticultural businesses and services on the Government of Alberta’s essential service list (with exception of aquaculture).
Applications are accepted via the existing Canadian Agricultural Partnership website.
The Partnership is a five-year, $3-billion commitment by Canada's federal, provincial and territorial governments to support Canada's agriculture and agri-food sectors.
