|Parent department||Government of New Brunswick|
The Department of Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labour is a department in the Government of New Brunswick. It is responsible for "ensuring the New Brunswick workforce is competitive by making strategic investments in people through innovative programs, services and partnerships." It also oversees the province's public universities and colleges, the provincial student loan system, labour and adult learning and literacy.
The department was created as the Department of Post-Secondary Education and Training on February 14, 2006 when Premier Bernard Lord restructured the New Brunswick Cabinet. It was created by merging the former Department of Training and Employment Development with the post-secondary education branch of the Department of Education. It was renamed the Department of Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labour by Premier Shawn Graham when he took office as organized labour had questioned why there was no "labour" minister.
