APMA EDI Fund Intake Process Updated
About our APMA Partnership

YAAACE has partnered with the Automotive Parts Manufacturing Association of Canada (APMA) to deliver the Equity Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Program, funded through the   Skills Development Fund (Ministry of Labor).  The APMA’s EDI Fund will construct pathways for historically under-represented groups such as youth, women, persons with a disability and racialized communities. The EDI Fund will support employers and community partners in their efforts to access, train and retain meaningful employment for new hires.

The EDI Fund will support 800 participants, with up to $8,000 allocated to each participant (wage subsidies, travel/commuting expenses, health and safety PPE, pre-screening candidates, mentorship and mental health services, skills upgrading, and retention and advancement). Participants will have a 3- 6 month placement resulting in on-the-job experience, upskilling and career development.

This project will target and benefit ethnic minority communities in Southern Ontario, such as youth, specifically those in marginalized communities, women, new Canadians, Indigenous communities and other visible minorities and their intersections. Ontario’s automotive sector has an extensive network of Tier1s and OMEs across urban and rural communities. Participating companies will be working with historically underrepresented groups in the automotive sector including youth, women, Black, Indigenous and people of colour.

The automotive sector represents 35% percent of all provincial exports and employ over 100,000 people, however there is an impending labour shortage because of the    aging work force but exacerbated the COVID-19 pandemic. According to Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters, by next year, 75% of businesses expect to face shortages in skilled production workers and 38% in labour.

The Canadian automotive sector employs 120,000 people and is the largest single contributor to this country’s manufacturing GDP. It is a great example of Canadian innovation and strength in a globally competitive market and represents $85 billion of annual activity in Canada. APMA is Canada’s national association representing OEM producers of parts, equipment, tools, supplies and services for the worldwide automotive industry. Founded 65 years ago, its members account for 90% of independent parts production in Canada. In 2016, automotive parts shipments were over $32 Billion and the industry employment level was over 96,000 people in parts alone.

The APMA will work with YAAACE and  employment service providers, community organizations and non-profits while coordinating with our 300+ members to promote the program and attract new workers. As an applicant is completed and accepted and a pre-defined term is met, funds can be released to the employers to assist in the support of onboarding, training and upskilling employees. The program will be committed to monitoring the effectiveness of achieving desired goals through qualitative and quantitative key performance indicators that will evaluate the effectiveness of client’s workforce development.
