New Support for Workers and Business Takes Effect
Government of Canada doubles the length of Work-Sharing agreements
By A Correspondent
The Honourable MaryAnn Mihychuk, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour, on April 27, encouraged employers to take advantage of extended Work-Sharing agreements that will help them retain workers during difficult economic times while also keeping them on the job. The Minister made the remarks at Heavy North Construction Ltd. in Fort McMurray – a current participant in the Government’s Work-Sharing program – and later hosted a roundtable discussion with various stakeholders in the Wood Buffalo area.
