New Brunswick launched four new apprenticeship incentive programs that are designed to engage employers and support apprentices, reports Daily Business Buzz.
“These incentives will support apprentices and encourage employers to hire them in the skilled trades,” Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labour Minister Jody Carr said. “Our government is committed to enhancing apprenticeship opportunities which will help address labour market challenges as outlined in the Labour Force and Skills Development Strategy 2013-2016.”
Carr made the announcement at the New Brunswick Apprenticeship Summit, in Moncton, hosted by the Canadian Apprenticeship Forum.
The new initiatives are being introduced under the apprenticeship incentive program.
