Labour Market Transfer Agreements | ESDC

The Government of Canada provides funding to provinces and territories to help people prepare for and return to work under two Labour Market Transfer Agreements – the new Workforce Development Agreements and the amended Labour Market Development Agreements.

With these agreements in place, provinces and territories have the flexibility to meet the various needs of their local labour markets and to provide better targeted supports to Canadians, including individuals, employers and underrepresented groups such as persons with disabilities, women and Indigenous peoples.

Workforce Development Agreements

The new Workforce Development Agreements (WDAs) support provinces and territories in their delivery of employment and skills training programming. The WDAs consolidate the Canada Job Fund Agreements, which include the Canada Job Grant, the Labour Market Agreements for Persons with Disabilities and the former Targeted Initiative for Older Workers.

Labour Market Development Agreements

Programs and services offered through Labour Market Development Agreements (LMDAs) provide skills training and employment supports to eligible individuals, particularly those who are eligible for Employment Insurance (EI) benefits or have contributed to the EI program.
