A review of 2014 at Employment and Social Development Canada 

Today, MP Parm Gill helped announce a review of Employment and Social Development Canada in 2014.  In association with Canada`s Economic Action Plan, our Government`s Job Plan will help ensure that  Canadians have the skills and training needed for success in the labour market.  To achieve this goal, the Government of Canada has taken considerable action. First, we are working  with the provinces and territories to deliver the Canada Job Grant, an innovative, employer-driven  approach to help Canadians gain the skills and training required to fill available jobs. Second, we are  currently overhauling the Temporary Foreign Worker Program to ensure it fills labour shortages on a  temporary basis. Third, starting in January 2015, the new Canada Apprentice Loan will offer up to $4,000  interest-free to help Canadians complete their Red Seal apprenticeship. Finally, we are introducing a
new Labour Market Agreement for Persons with Disabilities to improve their employment prospects.  The Government of Canada also launched a new Panel on Employment Challenges of New Canadians as  part of the action plan to improve foreign credential recognition for internationally trained  professionals. As of 2014, the Government continues to provide financial support to improve credential  recognition in 24 target occupations that represent over 80 percent of newcomers. Action taken to date  includes a microloans pilot project to help internationally trained workers cover the cost of having their  credentials recognized. To date, more than 1,400 skilled newcomers have benefitted from these  microloans.
The Government of Canada continues to provide further support to youth by offering tax credits, such as  the tuition, education and textbook tax credits, the tradesperson’s tools deduction and the  Apprenticeship Job Creation Tax Credit. September 2014 marked 500,000 apprenticeship grants issued  to help young Canadians pursue careers in the skilled trades, a significant milestone in the Government’s  Jobs Agenda. In 2015, MP Gill notes that “ the Government of Canada will continue to ensure Canadians have the  skills in demand today and in the future while also enhancing the participation of under-represented  groups in the workforce. I am tremendously proud of the work we have accomplished this year. Through
measures like the Canada Job Grant, the Canada Apprentice Loan and apprenticeship grants, our  Government remains focused on what matters to Canadians: creating jobs, economic growth, and longterm prosperity.“
