MISSISSAUGA CENTRE — This week, Kal-Trading Inc., also known as Kal-Polymers, a local business that is a leader in North America in reprocessing, compounding and distributing of plastic raw material, was announced by MPP Natalia Kusendova to be the recipient of $97,977 in direct funding from the Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development. This commitment by the Ministry will supplement Kal-Trading Inc.’s own generous commitment to this programming of $19,595.

This fiscal commitment will directly go to support 28 participants in M2M Workplace Essential Skills spanning a 12-month period. This program, being offered by M2M Business Solutions Inc., provides essential skills that allow participants to align their culture, personal goals and department with the company's vision. The government of Ontario recognizes the value of this programming, assessing it Tier 1 as 27 trainees will benefit from an increase in wages and position advancement as a direct result of such training.

"This new and exciting investment into our community is yet another way our government is prioritizing Ontario workers and empowering local businesses to build an economy for the future,” said MPP Kusendova. “Organizations like Kal-Trading Inc. will lead the way in ensuring that their employees can continually expand their skill sets and their expertise, thus doing a profound service to this province and helping to create a solid foundation for our economic recovery post-COVID-19. Businesses in Mississauga Centre continually demonstrate that our province will be well-positioned to bounce back swiftly as we continue to vaccinate Ontarians in the coming months."

“Workers are the heart and soul of this province and our economy,” said Monte McNaughton, Minister of Labour, Training and Skills Development. “As we turn the page on a challenging year for businesses in all sectors, I applaud Kal-Trading Inc for stepping up to ensure their employees have the skills needed to steer Ontario forward.”
