Government improves accessibility for Canadians with disabilities

supports the inclusion and participation of Canadians with all abilities in every aspect of society.

Today's announcement is one example of what the Government is doing to help Canadians. To help hard-working families, the Government is also enhancing the Universal Child Care Benefit, introducing the Family Tax Cut and making improvements to the Child Care Expenses Deduction and the Children's Fitness Tax Credit.

Quick Facts

Since the launch of the Enabling Accessibility Fund (EAF) in 2007, the Government of Canada has funded over 1,800 projects, helping thousands of Canadians gain better access to their communities' facilities, programs and services.

In 2013, the Government of Canada extended the EAF on an ongoing basis at $15 million per year to improve accessibility in facilities across Canada, including workplaces.

In recent years, the Government of Canada has taken concrete action to support programs for people with disabilities:
The Opportunities Fund for Persons with Disabilities has helped 40,000 people with disabilities across Canada to prepare for, obtain and maintain employment or self-employment.

As of March 2015, Canadians have registered over 100,000 Registered Disability Savings Plans and have benefitted from over $1 billion in bonds and grants deposited by the federal government

The Government provides $222 million annually to the provinces and territories through Labour Market Agreements for Persons with Disabilities to help Canadians with disabilities develop skills to improve their job prospects.

Through Economic Action Plan 2014, the Government is providing $15 million over three years to the Canadian Association for Community Living to help connect people with developmental disabilities with jobs. It is also providing $11.4 million over four years to the Sinneave Family Foundation and Autism Speaks Canada to expand vocational training programs for people with autism spectrum disorders.

The Universal Child Care Benefit would increase from $100 to $160 per month (totalling up to $1,920 per year) for children under the age of 6, and parents would receive a new benefit of $60 per month (up to $720 per year) for each child aged 6 through 17.

Government grants boost Gold Seal training

Government grants boost Gold Seal training

ONSLOW Feb 10th,2015 — School days are long behind Hal Fowler.

Fowler has been running his own construction company for more than three decades, but he welcomes an opportunity to gain Gold Seal Certification, a sort of a voucher to prove to others that he knows his stuff.

“I’ve always wanted to do some training with the guys and myself,” Fowler said Tuesday morning at the Onslow site of a new Nissan dealership, a construction project managed by his small company, Fowler Construction Services of Bible Hill.

“I’ve been doing this for years. When I apply for stuff like Gold Seal, the first thing they tell me is I don’t have educational credits. Well, I’m 60 years old and I’m not going back to school. I have a business to run.”

That’s where the Canada-Nova Scotia job grant comes into play.

“The grant helped me and two of my employees,” Fowler said. “It’s a lot more affordable, and we all come out with Gold Seal.”

The Gold Seal Certification program confirms that construction tradespeople demonstrate expertise and commitment and ensures that practitioners are qualified to meet project demands across the country.

A $16,000 Canada Job Grant, one of 24 such investments from the federal government that are delivered through the province’s Workplace Innovation and Productivity Skills Incentive Program, spurred Fowler’s decision to take further training.

“The grant was a big deal,” he said. “It’s very expensive. When they are going to cost-share the way they do, it makes it much more affordable. It was worth doing.”

Fowler, company site superintendent Jeffrey Fowler and project manager Sterling Mingo are in the middle of six months of online training in the office, augmented by some on-site tutelage at the Construction Association of Nova Scotia site in Dartmouth.

“The training for the three of us was about $32,000, and they (government) contributed 50 per cent.”

The trainees work on things that are relevant to their jobs.

“For me, a lot of it is confirming what I thought I already knew,” Fowler said. “To get other people to think that, we know it is another thing.”

He said his site superintendent is taking courses that include direction on how to run job sites and how to deal with employees. His project manager is taking courses geared to that side of the construction-management work and all three are taking a constructional law course that helps them deal with “liens and holdbacks, and all those nice things.”

The Canada Job Grant uses federal dollars to provide up to $15,000 per person for training costs.

“In Canada today, there is a huge deficit in trained employees to apply for jobs which are being offered,” said Conservative MP Scott Armstrong, parliamentary secretary to the federal employment minister.

“We want to make sure that the training opportunities are there, that we can attract new young people to do these jobs and get the training they need.”

Armstrong said the job grant program involves both levels of government and private industry in a plan intended to level the playing field between public investment in training and private investment, which is lacking.

“The role of the province is to administer all this. They have the infrastructure on the ground to disperse the funds. The federal government is transferring the money, the province is administering it and the employer is actually directing it. This is a new way to do training in Canada.”

Armstrong said the Fowler grant is the first one in Nova Scotia, but the province is almost fully booked for the year. Once the program is fully implemented, more than $7.9 million per year will be invested through the grant program in Nova Scotia, part of about $300 million per year that will be doled out across the country.

Armstrong said he couldn’t give a specific number of how many Nova Scotians will benefit from the grant program.

“We put a lot of flexibility in this to meet the needs on the ground.”

He said the province needs a whole generation of workers to upgrade their training while bringing a new generation of apprentices into the construction, mining and manufacturing industries.

Feds provide $200K to help immigrant women in Peel find economic prosperity

Feds provide $200K to help immigrant women in Peel find economic prosperity

BRAMPTON— The federal government is providing the Brampton Multicultural Community Centre with $200,000 to help immigrant women in the community find good-paying jobs.

The money is part of $2.8 million earmarked for 14 Ontario projects designed to increase opportunities for women in non-traditional occupations, while giving females, particularly immigrant women, a chance for greater economic prosperity in Canada’s job market.

 

Federal Minister of Labour and Minister of Status of Women Dr. Kellie Leitch made the funding announcement at Brampton’s civic centre Wednesday morning. She was joined by Bramalea-Gore-Malton MP Bal Gosal and representatives from the Brampton Multicultural Community Centre.

 

The centre will receive $200,000 over two years. The local project is expected to help some 300 women, according to the Brampton Multicultural Community Centre.

Established in 1987, the non-profit organization focuses on helping immigrants settle and integrate.

Peel region is one of the most culturally diverse communities in Canada, according to Amad, there are more than 200 different ethnic groups and more than 70 languages spoken.

Immigrant women represent about 26 per cent of the region’s human capital, she noted. Despite their high level of education, this demographic is over-represented in low-paying jobs and on unemployment rolls compared to their Canadian counterparts, Amad pointed out.

Immigrant women seeking advancement in the workforce are stymied by language and cultural barriers, credentials that are not recognized, a lack of Canadian work experience and discrimination, she said.

 

Alberta colleges, universities to get $50M in new money

Alberta colleges, universities to get $50M in new money

 

The Alberta government is giving the province’s colleges and universities an additional $50 million in funding.

The surprise announcement comes after the government cut $147 million or seven per cent from their operating grants earlier this year.

The University of Alberta is getting an additional $14.4 million; the University of Calgary, another $10.6 million.

According to a government news release, the money is being provided to “help institutions adjust to current enrolment pressures and prepare for even greater enrolments next year.”

Alberta colleges, universities to get $50M in new money

 

Advanced Education Minister Thomas Lukaszuk says the money was approved because the province's finances have improved.

“It'll allow them to bring in new students in January if they choose to do so or it'll finance over-enrolment that they may have incurred during this particular semester," he said.

"It sets a new base for their funding so next year's budget will be calculated off of this base.”

But opposition parties say the money is being spent to help Premier Alison Redford in her leadership review later this month.

"This is not good management, this is utter chaos," said Wildrose Leader Danielle Smith.

"I think what we're seeing is we've got an advanced education minister and a government that made major mistakes, they're facing major pushback and a premier who's facing a leadership review in a couple of weeks."She's doing everything she possibly can to scramble to get a couple of wins before her members render a vote on her leadership."

Lukaszuk denied the new funding had anything to do with the leadership review.

A partial list of additional funding:

  • University of Calgary – $10.6 million
  • Mount Royal University – $2.1 million
  • University of Alberta – $14.4 million
  • MacEwan University – $2.6 million
  • University of Lethbridge – $2.4 million
  • Athabasca Univeristy $970,718
  • NAIT – $3.7 million
  • SAIT – $3.4 million
