RE: Work-share program


Dear member,

During these challenging economic times, many Dental Laboratories are finding it difficult to remain profitable even after going through a series of layoffs and/or reduction in the number of employee hours of work. With that being said, the College of Dental Technologists has recently become aware of a Work share program offered by the Government of Canada that provides for income support to allow Employers to retain their employees.

More information regarding the program can be found on Service Canada’s website at:
