Listuguj (Wednesday, September 4, 2013)
The Listuguj Mi’gmaq Development Centre (LMDC) is allocated funds for employment and training measures under the Aboriginal Skills and Employment Training Strategy (ASETS) agreement, with Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC). Annual allocations have not increased since the signing of the first agreement in 1996.
The most recent meeting of the LMD Council Board of Directors was held on August 29, 2013. During that meeting 100% funds were committed for the 2013-2014 fiscal year.
It is important to note that this does not affect Clients whose applications for funding have already been approved. All clients/organizations with signed agreements will continue to receive allowances, wages subsidies, etc.
The LMDC will continue to take training and employment applications for funding, which will be processed on a priority basis established by the Board of Directors, should funds become available.
Career and employment counseling services continue to be available for all community members.
