|Mississauga, Ontario – Canada’s manufacturing sector is on the cutting edge of innovation. With an increasing demand for green products and processes, the nature of work and skill requirements are rapidly changing across this important sector in Canada. The Government of Canada remains committed to investing in local businesses and organizations as they adapt, become more sustainable and create jobs for the future.

Through the AIME Green initiative, southern Ontario SMEs in the manufacturing sector can receive up to $100,000 to upskill and train their workforce to adopt green manufacturing solutions. Eligible SMEs will have access to tailored training programs that support the adoption of new technology, green processes or procedures or highly skilled personnel in areas that lead to green innovation or productivity improvements.
Through this project, YLF will support 36 SMEs, create 400 jobs, and maintain 1,050 jobs in the manufacturing sector across southern Ontario. For more information and to apply by March 31, 2023, visit the AIME Green webpage.
