Budget 2021: Major new jobs program promised for Alberta
A major new jobs training program aimed at helping Alberta workers adapt to a changing economy will be announced in the coming weeks.

On Thursday, provincial Finance Minister Travis Toews said Albertans should “stay tuned” for an official announcement on the Alberta Jobs Now program, which is expected to provide a grant to eligible employers to provide Albertans opportunities to upgrade their skills as well as to encourage employers to create jobs to get unemployed Albertans back to work.
