Confederation College's trades jobs hub gets $7M from Ontario
Ontario is committing $7 million to a new state‐of‐the‐art training facility at Confederation College to offer students preparatory, apprenticeship, trades and technology programs.
The Technology Education and Collaboration Hub in Thunder Bay will offer students an innovative workshop and laboratory space.
"The … hub will result in the consolidation of a variety of trades and technology programs into a single location," said Thunder Bay-Atikokan MPP Bill Mauro in a news release Friday.
"The new hub will expose students to a variety of different fields of study, and result in a graduate with a diverse skill set and the flexibility to work in a variety of key roles."
College president Jim Madder said the investment will help Confederation grow in the years to come.
"The hub will enable us to play a significant role in the future of northwestern Ontario's manufacturing, technology and resource sectors," he said.
