April 25, 2022
Durham College has officially opened its new Ontario Power Generation Centre for Skilled Trades and Technology (CSTT) facility. The facility will be home to a variety of labs and shops, and the new space will allow the institution to increase its industrial skilled trades training by 750 student seats. The opening ceremony included tours of the CSTT, an Indigenous blessing, and a ribbon cutting. The construction of the centre was funded by $9.5M from the community. “This incredible new facility will help bring student success to life, creating opportunities to advance innovation and knowledge and providing a career launchpad for the next generation of skilled tradespeople,” said Durham President Don Lovisa. “The generosity and support from our community is an investment in our collective success and our students’ futures.” Durham (ON)
