CBU, NSCC support Nova Scotia Power in reskilling, upskilling employees as coal phased out

February 24, 2022
Cape Breton University and Nova Scotia Community College will be supporting Nova Scotia Power as the organization helps employees to reskill and upskill. The company is moving to shut down its coal-fired electric plants and will be meeting with employees to get a sense of what their career aspirations are and if they are considering moving to another job or continuing with Nova Scotia Power. CBU, NSCC, and Nova Scotia’s Labour Department will work with the organization to ensure that there are training programs that can help current employees learn the necessary new skills for their future career, with a potential focus on renewable energy.
