Skills Development

The SD program provides participants training to help them obtain the skills they need to find work. Participants should be those who lack marketable skills and need new or additional occupational skills.


“Nova Scotia’s education and apprenticeship system can help eligible participants receive training and experience they need to become a professional skilled tradesperson.”


“The START program encourages employers to hire unemployed Nova Scotians requiring work experience resulting in good jobs for Nova Scotians and good employees for employers.”
