Department of Labour, Skills and Immigration
The Department of Labour, Skills and Immigration helps people prepare for job opportunities and build the skills they need. We promote safe work environments and help employers and employees know their rights and responsibilities. The department works with partners and other levels of government to support people immigrating to Nova Scotia. We provide programs to help newcomers. We also provide career information, employment services and learning programs that support the labour market.
Workplace education initiative
The Workplace Education Initiative (WEI) provides business skills training for working Nova Scotians. This training enhances individuals’ workplace skills and supports businesses and organizations to be more successful, open to change and ready for growth. This program is offered by the Department of Labour, Skills & Immigration (LSI) in partnership with business, industry, and community organizations. It is primarily funded by the Government of Canada through the Canada–Nova Scotia Workforce Development Agreement (WDA).
