Province announces two small grants for labour

The Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs announced two small grants aimed at helping farmers recruit workers.

The Ontario Federation of Agriculture is getting $617,400 for its Feeding Your Future: Connecting Ontario’s Agri-Food Workforce.

It is a website that matches job seekers with jobs and provides free virtual career fairs, webinar series and specialized training opportunities. 

Food and Beverage Ontario is gtting $195,000 for Food and Beverage Ontario to implement a strategy that will address critical challenges facing the sector such as talent attraction and retention, skills development, and innovation. 

Does anybody think this will make much difference. At least a few administrators might be semi-busy.
