New spots will be included in spring budget

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.
