The Canadian economy has continued to create jobs, with more Canadians working today than during the worst part of the recession. Economic Action Plan 2014 (EAP14) helps to provide opportunities for everyone. EAP14 does this by continuing to support jobs and growth by connecting Canadians with available jobs, strengthening Canada’s labour market, and investing in the workforce of tomorrow.
Nine key priorities have been identified to ensure that this objective is addressed:
- Connecting Canadians with available jobs
- Ensuring training reflects labour market needs
- Putting in place labour market agreements for persons with disabilities
- Training the workforce of tomorrow
- Reforming First Nations K-12 education
- Supporting Entrepreneurs Through Intensive Mentoring
- Targeting initiatives for older workers
- Enhancing the Job Matching Service and modernizing the National Job Bank
- Fostering job creation, innovation and trade
With these and other measures, EAP14 continues to support jobs and growth.
