Ontario Supporting Auto Manufacturing WorkersPublished on July 07, 2021
The government is committed to making Ontario’s automotive sector, once again, become one of the most competitive in the world.
That’s why the government is investing $7 million to deliver training and paid job placements for up to 800 people from underrepresented groups.
This project, led by the Automotive Parts Manufacturers’ Association (APMA), will help develop a new talent pipeline to reinvigorate a sector with an aging workforce and help historically marginalized groups to train for, access, and retain good jobs
With most workers over the age of 45 and thousands of opening across the province, this investment will help reinvigorate the automotive sector with the fresh talent they need to grow, become more competitive and produce their products at full capacity.
This will energize our economy, workforce and, just as importantly, create great, local jobs that make our communities stronger.
