The Labour Market Agreements have ended, and now the new Canada-Yukon Job Fund (CYJF) is in place to allow greater employer involvement in training. The vision of the CYJF is to increase participation in the labour force and help people develop the skills necessary to find and keep meaningful and long-term employment.
Funding is provided by the Government of Canada through the Canada-Yukon Job Fund.
