Canada invests over $1 M in College of the North Atlantic

September 18, 2014

Canada has announced over $1 M in funding for College of the North Atlantic. The funding will help the college improve its training capabilities, enhance its programming, and improve its outreach capacity. Some of the funding will go toward the Institute for Cultural Tourism at CNA’s Bonavista campus, to help develop its executive-level training programs in destination development and culinary tourism. Close to half of the funding will go toward CNA’s Port aux Basques campus to introduce new technologies and equipment and improve training capabilities in its non-destructive testing program. Another significant portion of the funding will be invested in the Prince Philip Drive campus in St John’s. This will fund an industry engagement project through CNA’s Manufacturing Technology Centre and will help develop outreach capacity and support services for small- and medium-sized enterprises in the manufacturing and processing sectors, as well as going toward the purchase of new equipment and facility upgrades.
