Labour Market Partnerships
Labour Market Partnerships (LMP) support organizations to address labour market issues and human resource planning activities.
The LMP Program provides funding to projects that address challenges related to a local labour market or community, and assists employers exclusively within that labour market. The Ministry of Social Development and Poverty Reduction (SDPR) administers local LMP projects.
The LMP Program provides funding to organizations to encourage, support and facilitate addressing labour force issues (imbalances) and human resource planning activities which are in the public interest. Fundamental to any LMP project is the identification of a labour market issue where an imbalance between supply (workers) and demand (jobs) exists.
LMP also includes the Employer Sponsored Training (EST) program that provides eligible employers with financial assistance to support training activities for employees who would otherwise lose their jobs.
