Working For Workers
Training More Workers for In Demand Careers in Auto Manufacturing
Our PC government is investing $5 million to provide free training to 500 people from underrepresented groups to prepare them for well-paying jobs in the province’s thriving automotive manufacturing sector.
“Our auto workers are heroes, and we need more of them to deliver our ambitious plan to build Ontario,” said Monte McNaughton, MPP for Lambton—Kent—Middlesex and Minister of Labour, Immigration, Training and Skills Development. “This investment will help local manufacturers find the skilled workers they need to grow our economy and connect job seekers with meaningful careers where they can proudly earn bigger paycheques for themselves and their families.”
The program features a combination of online and on-the-job training, where participants learn critical skills, such as manufacturing essentials, project management, and troubleshooting. After completing the program, each participant will receive a job offer from a local employer.
The project will provide participants with the necessary skills for rewarding careers in machine operation, assembly, quality control, and logistics. It will also help address a critical shortage of workers in a vital industry as Ontario positions itself as a North American leader in auto manufacturing.
We’re securing game-changing investments in the province’s auto sector that will ensure the electric vehicles and batteries of the future are made here in Ontario, by Ontario workers.
