USAgNet - 04/17/2018

The Canadian Dairy Commission supports the dairy industry in recruiting and training a highly skilled, diverse workforce to meet the current and future needs of its dairy producing and processing sectors. The CDC launched the Workforce Development Initiative, which is a three-year, $5 million investment to support the attraction and education of a qualified workforce in the Canadian dairy industry.

The WDI is composed of four key funding programs, including scholarships, career promotion, education and continuing education programs.

"The CDC's Workforce Development Initiative will help attract new and qualified workers to the dairy sector, which is of vital importance to remain competitive and foster continuous innovation. Canada's dairy sector creates good jobs, helping to grow the middle class, strengthening the economy, and ensuring that Canadian families enjoy our country's high-quality dairy products," aid Lawrence MacAulay, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food.

The CDC will evaluate applications during the summer and funding will start in the fall.
