ON doubles funding to St Clair metal cutting program to meet regional skills need

April 4, 2016

St Clair College and the Canadian Association of Mould Makers have received $640 K from Ontario to lead two precision metal cutting programs in the 2016-2017 school year. The funding was provided in response to an increased regional need, as CBC reports that there is an ongoing demand for skilled CNC programmers and operators and general machinists in the area. "The metal cutters and manufacturing industry is a bright spot in the Canadian economy today and still has room to grow," said CAMM President Jonathon Azzopardi, "programs like the pre-apprenticeship program are helping to make this success story happen by attracting new talent and training our next generation work force."
