The provincial government is investing nearly $690,000 to train 260 manufacturing workers and apprentices on how to improve productivity, keep them safe on the job and strengthen our supply chains.
Courses will be offered in person or virtually, and will be available to employees in any manufacturing company in the province at no cost.
The first round of training will begin in early summer. Companies can get more information and apply by contacting John.Rodic@cme-mec.ca.

Amendments to the Business Corporations Act, Cooperative Association Act, Credit Union Incorporation Act, Financial Institutions Act and Societies Act will permanently allow companies, societies, credit unions and co-operative associations to host fully or partially electronic meetings.
In April 2020, the Province temporarily removed legislative barriers to meeting electronically so organizations could continue to govern and provide services through the pandemic. This temporary option has supported more efficient, flexible and accessible business practices for organizations.
The province is accepting applications for support through British Columbia’s new major anchor attractions and tour bus companies funding program.
Anchor attractions and tour bus companies face high fixed costs because of their infrastructure and minimum staffing requirements. The $50-million BC Major Anchor Attractions Program may offer up to $1 million per attraction through one-time grants.
Eligible expenses include payroll, rent and utility costs related to restarting or ramping up operations in preparation for gradual reopening in alignment with provincial health orders. The funding is available for not-for-profit organizations and businesses.
The application window is open until June 7. Funds will be provided in July 2021.
