Ontario has announced that it will invest $7 M to create a new state-of-the-art training facility at Confederation College to help support strong technology and trade jobs in Northern Ontario. The new Technology Education and Collaboration Hub will allow students to pursue preparatory, apprenticeship, trades, and technology programs without needing to leave Thunder Bay. “We are grateful for the support from Ontario to develop the Technology Education and Collaboration Hub,” said Confederation President Jim Madder, “As the economy changes, we will see our need for local manufacturing increase, and through the establishment of this hub, Confederation College will be poised to grow our manufacturing, technology, and trades programming to support a higher number of qualified graduates ready to enter the workforce.” ON
