Provincial Government Invites Applications for Job Creation Partnerships

The Honourable Al Hawkins, Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Labour, today announced applications are now being accepted from employers for this year’s Job Creation Partnerships (JCP) program. Budget 2018 allocates $10.5 million to the program through the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Labour Market Development Agreement.

The JCP program supports projects that provide individuals eligible for Employment Insurance (EI) with opportunities to improve their employability through work experience. These projects benefit the participant as well their community.

In 2017-18, more than 1,400 individuals participated in the program through projects delivered by over 250 organizations. Each year, funding is allocated throughout the province based on the share of EI beneficiaries.

More information about the Job Creation Partnership program, including the application form for employers, can be found at www.aesl.gov.nl.ca/lmda/jcp.html. The deadline for applications is September 28, 2018.

Quote
“Through collaboration with partners, including employers, community organizations, and workers, we are better able to encourage job creation and economic growth. The Job Creation Partnerships program benefits individuals and communities throughout the province, creating new opportunities that can benefit all Newfoundlanders and Labradorians.”
Honourable Al Hawkins
Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Labour
