Second Career program to survive upcoming Ontario budget, says TCU minister

March 3, 2010

Ontario Minister of Training, Colleges, and Universities John Milloy says the province's Second Career program, designed to help laid-off workers retrain and return to the workforce, will last its full 3-year session, despite burning through its initial funding and nearing the end of a second infusion of cash. Milloy says his department has "eliminated" a backlog built up last fall when 10,000 new applicants in August and September used up funding meant to last another 18 months. Toronto Star
