Question: Thousands of Albertans, including many within Sturgeon County, have lost their jobs and government revenue has been significantly reduced as a result of the drop in oil prices. How can Canada diversify its economy and job market to become less reliant on the oil-and-gas roller coaster?
Travis Dueck – Liberal Party of Canada
Diversifying Canada’s economy is absolutely crucial for ensuring the future prosperity and security of Canadians, and the way that we can best diversify Canada’s economy is by investing in Canada’s greatest resource — Canadians.
A new Liberal government has committed to making it easier for Canadians looking to increase their job skills by investing an additional $750 million annually into training programs delivered in partnership with provinces and territories; we will invest $1.3 billion over the next three years and create 40,000 jobs per year for young Canadians giving them a stronger start in life.
