NORTH BAY — Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli announced the province is providing YES Employment Services with $135,276 under the Skills Catalyst Fund. This one-time funding is for workforce development projects that test new, emerging ideas and approaches to labour market challenges.

The Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development received 163 eligible applications.  Sixty projects were selected for funding.  The first round of the Skills Catalyst Fund provided $6 million in funding and supported 20 innovative projects.  This current round provided $20 million in funding and will support 60 projects.
