Joe Preston, Member of Parliament for Elgin-Middlesex-London, on behalf of the Honourable Candice Bergen, Minister of State (Social Development), announced $341,825 in Skills Link funding to YWCA Elgin-St. Thomas. The Government's Skills Link program will help connect youth with jobs in high-demand fields while ensuring that Canada's economy benefits from the skills and talents of young Canadians. By investing in youth today, we are making sure they can contribute to our long-term prosperity.

"Our Government is committed to creating jobs, economic growth and long-term prosperity through organizations like the YWCA," stated MP Preston. "We are creating these opportunities for youth through the skills link funding announced today."

The Government of Canada's Youth Employment Strategy is helping youth develop the skills and gain the experience they need to get jobs now and prepare for the workforce of tomorrow. Led by Employment and Social Development Canada in partnership with 10 other federal departments, the Youth Employment Strategy helps youth obtain career information, find jobs and stay employed. YES includes the Skills Link and Career Focus programs and the Canada Summer Jobs initiative, which creates thousands of job opportunities for students every summer. YES receives approximately $300 million in annual funding.

Furthermore, the Government of Canada is helping youth plan their careers, learn new skills and find jobs through enhanced online services available at

In August 2013, Minister of State Bergen announced $24 million as part of an Economic Action Plan 2012 initiative to connect over 1 900 young Canadians across the country with jobs in high-demand fields. The funding will be invested in the following programs: Career Focus: over $19 million and Skills Link: over $4.9 million. This funding is in addition to Economic Action Plan 2013's investment of$70 million over three years to support an extra 5,000 paid internships.
