LaMPSS Organization Intake

The first step to apply for funding with the Province of Nova Scotia for Labour Market Programs is to register your organization in LaMPSS. This is a one-time process, completed the first time you want to apply for funding using LaMPSS. Once the registration is entered into LaMPSS, your information will then be stored and shared by departments managing labour market funding agreements within LaMPSS.

Service Registration Learning Module

In August 2015, LaMPSS introduced new Service Registration functionality to enable additional tracking of client-level data for certain organization funding programs. For these agreements, Service Registration added new functionality to the LaMPSS Self-Serve website, enabling you to create activities – or ‘services’ – and to capture participant information for those services. These training materials provide detailed information on how to use the new service registration functionality in LaMPSS. The government department responsible for each funding program will provide further guidance on how to use Service Registration if it is a requirement for your program.
