New Brunswick to train people on EI

More than $68 million will be coming to New Brunswick Friday to provide training opportunities for those unable to access training under EI programs. The federal government will sign a labour market agreement with the province during a news conference at the New Brunswick Community College.

Saint John MP Paul Zed says the deal will play an important role in helping to ensure the province has the skills to reach self-sufficiency.

Details will be worked out with the province.
