Brad Wall in scrum

Premier Brad Wall announced some items that will be in next spring's budget at his 'state of the province' address on Thursday.

The Saskatchewan government will boost the number of training seats in next spring's budget, Premier Brad Wall says.

Speaking before a Regina Chamber of Commerce audience on Thursday, Wall said there will be 700 new spots for adult basic education, which has a huge waiting list.

With the additions, there will be a total of 8,580 adult basic education seats. 

The province also plans to add another 300 apprenticeship seats.

Wall also announced he will work with manufacturers to create a 'centre of excellence' — which will train aboriginal people for manufacturing jobs.
