In a release, the feds say that a key part of Canada’s economic recovery is supporting businesses as they adapt, grow, and recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. Small and medium-sized businesses and the organizations that support them represent the backbone of regional economies. They generate well-paying jobs and are a source of pride for their communities.
To do so, businesses and entrepreneurs need a strong foundation, built on technological innovation, inclusivity, and clean growth to create the workforce of the future.
The four projects in Kings and Hants Counties announced by Blois sees a total investment of $1,991,000 through the Jobs and Growth Fund (JGF). They are expected to create up to 12 new jobs. The announcement was made on behalf of the Honourable Ginette Petitpas Taylor, Minister of Official Languages and Minister responsible for ACOA.
