Call for proposals

Labour Market Partnerships (LMP) grants support Alberta’s industry sector and employer associations with common labour market challenges. These provincial grants help people prepare to participate in the dynamic labour market.

Alberta Labour and Immigration will have one Call for Proposals (CFP) for the Industry Workforce Partnerships LMP program.

The LMP program helps industries build their workforce. It is designed to support projects with industries that have the same workforce-related needs.

Examples of LMP program activities

  • Research and analysis of labour market trends.
  • Developing strategic plans to prepare for future skill requirements and/or prevent skills shortages.
