The Government of Saskatchewan has announced the funding of approximately $4.38 million for Saskatchewan Apprenticeship and Trade Certification Commission (SATCC) and several other training institutions to deliver skills training programs to help continuing to grow a skilled workforce in Saskatchewan.
This funding will allow these institutions to expand their skills training programs in the construction, welding, and health care sectors to help meet the labour needs of businesses. It also supports key actions of the Saskatchewan Growth Plan to ensure under-represented groups are enabled to participate in the economy.
Several of these new training opportunities will be targeted at Indigenous individuals and will be delivered through partnerships between training institutions and the communities. The expansion of the Tiny House Project is one such project, and will provide Indigenous apprentices with work experiences, while working towards their journeyperson certificates by building small, modular houses in their local communities.
The training will be funded through the Canada-Saskatchewan Labour Market Transfer Agreements and provided by the SATCC and several other training institutions. In addition to the Tiny House Project expansion, the skills programs include:
Health Care Aide/Continuing Care Aide
Medical Lab Assistant
Electrical Applied Certificate
Steel Stud and Drywall
Introduction to Scaffolding
