$7 Million Trades Centre for Fanshawe College

March 15, 2007

Fanshawe College has received $5 million from the Ontario government to renovate the former London Community Small Business Centre into an industrial and skills training centre.  The Centre will focus on fields and trades that are short on skilled workers in Ontario -- including aviation trades, which are a major issue for Diamond Aircraft in London.  The centre will hopefully train 1,000 students a year in industrial and skilled trades programs that will be designed either in response to industry need, or in line with the diploma programs offered at the college.
