January 31, 2018

Actua, a non-profit organization that provides STEM education to Canadian youth, received $10M from the Government of Canada’s CanCODE program. The $10M in funding will be used to increase coding programming offered through 35 member programs located at universities and colleges. Postsecondary institutions from across the country have issued releases specifying how the funds will be used at their institution. “Coding is the next big job. Industries ranging from automotive and agri-food to the life sciences and clean technology need coders, given their increasingly digital nature,” said Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development.
