A Flimflam Budget
Published on 26/04/2013
The recent federal Budget argued that there is a serious ‘skills gap’ in Canada. The Budget proposed a new Canada Job Grant to help fill that gap. But the Canada Job Grant is a poorly thought-out program and is likely to create no than more than a handful of training programs at best. Since the $300 million funding for the Canada Job Grant is to be taken out of existing provincial training programs, the result may actually be a substantial decrease in training programs in Canada.
