Municipal employees may now take the GN’s HR training courses.  Likewise, GN employees may now take MTO courses (space permitting).  The MTO will not be able to pay for travel, hotel and per diems for GN courses, but this partnership between the MTO and the GN will nearly double the courses available to the municipality and municipal staff!!!!

The MTO will help load you or your staff on these GN courses so we will act as the point of contact between the municipalities and the GN department putting on the training.
