The provincial government will support seven Job Creation Partnership projects employing 18 individuals in the Grand Bank area through funding of $120,204.
Totalling $144,272, these projects will result in the hiring of a special events co-ordinator to assist with Lord's Cove Come Home Year celebrations; improvements to the Grande Meadows golf course in Frenchman's Cove; the hiring of an individual to assist with Lawn Come Home Year preparations; the hiring of an individual to work with the Greater Lamaline Area Development Association; the hiring of a family resource centre facilitator assistant through Burin Peninsula Brighter Futures Inc.; the hiring of a young field worker through the St. Lawrence Youth Committee; and renovations to the community centre in Lawn.
Through Job Creation Partnerships, non-profit community-based organizations, municipal governments and businesses partner with the Provincial Government to address local priority needs. Examples of potential partnership initiatives include maintenance and repairs to community infrastructure, such as town halls and churches; the beautification of public areas; and the staffing of businesses or organizations. In addition to in-kind or in-cash contributions from sponsors, Job Creation Partnership program funding is provided through direct contributions to sponsors or through the extension of Employment Insurance benefits for project participants.
