The APMA’s EDI Fund will address the issue head on. Our goal is to build attraction and develop a new talent pipeline that will construct pathways to historically underrepresented groups such as youth, women, persons with a disability and racialized communities. The EDI Fund will support employers and community partners in their efforts to access, train and retain meaningful employment for new hires.
The EDI Fund will support 800 participants with up to $8,000 in supports available to employers and community partners. Participants will have a minimum 6-month placement resulting in on-the-job experience, upskilling and career development.
The EDI Fund will run from June 1, 2021 to March 31, 2022.
