The province is looking at its watch demanding the federal government act to save programs that help people find jobs.

Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities Brad Duguid underlines there are only 40 days left before the current labour market agreements will expire. That means Ontario's job training programs that survive on federal funding will be left out in the cold because money will run out.

Duguid wants Ottawa to extend the current program until another can be put in place.  Duguid these job-search and training services are successful, pointing to 87 per cent of those enrolled find work.

He says he's trying to be hopeful that talks with the federal government will pan out.
