About the Sectoral Workforce Solutions Program

The Sectoral Workforce Solutions Program (SWSP) helps key sectors of the economy implement solutions to address their current and emerging workforce needs.

The SWSP is a contribution program that funds sectoral projects that support workers and employers through a wide-range of activities:

  • training and reskilling to help workers gain new skills to meet the needs of employers and transition to in-demand jobs in key sectors
  • helping employers, in particular small and medium-sized businesses, attract and retain a skilled and innovative workforce
  • initiatives to help equity-deserving groups get the skills they need to find work and succeed in key sectors
  • other creative solutions, standards and tools to address sectoral labour market needs

This new Program builds on and replaces the Sectoral Initiatives Program (SIP).
