Labour Force Development

Program Description

The Labour Force Development Program is the administration of a quality validation process for the recommendation of clients for financial assistance based on case by case management through submissions of Client Activity Plans and Activity Budgets to the appropriate funding agency. In addition to client intakes we coordinate service delivery contracts with Training institutes for the coordination of specific training activities.
