Manitoba opens Sector Council Program applications

WINNIPEG – The Government of Manitoba has announced it is accepting applications for the next four-year cycle of its Sector Council Program.

The program supports “development of a skilled, adaptable and productive workforce in key sectors of the economy,” provincial Economic Development, Investment and Trade Minister Cliff Cullen said in a release.

“The Sector Council Program supports industry organizations to develop and deliver innovative strategies and training programs that target emerging labour market needs.”

Cullen said applications will be evaluated using a new logic model that identifies expected activities, outputs and outcomes around five themes designed to:

  • enable access to industry-relevant training;
  • facilitate alignment of training with industry needs;
  • expand the skilled labour pool to ensure a sufficient supply of workers for jobs in the sector;
  • develop industry intelligence to inform responsive strategies and investments; and
  • align labour and employee skills with business needs through effective human resource management.

The program supports 11 sectors:

  • aerospace;
  • agriculture;
  • bioscience;
  • construction;
  • creative industries;
  • film;
  • information, communication and digital technologies;
  • natural resources, energy and environment;
  • tourism, hospitality and retail/customer services;
  • traditional and advanced manufacturing; and
  • transportation and distribution.

The provincial government will enter into four-year funding agreements with successful applicants instead of using annual renewals. Completed applications are due Nov. 21 at 8:30 a.m. CT.

More information on applying to the program is available here.
