Accessing skilled careers subject of NL throne speech

March 6, 2012

Newfoundland and Labrador's 2012 throne speech states the government will focus this year on 3 principal objectives, one of which is to give residents the added support they may need to seize career opportunities. The province states that over the course of the 4-year term ahead, it will hold the line on university and college tuition fee increases and shift the balance from student loans to grants. In this year's budget, the government will introduce and expand programs to help apprentices progress through to journeyperson status. It will also increase training for under-represented groups, particularly for women in skilled trades and business.
