Durham College and Ontario Power Generation (OPG) have renewed a partnership that will support skilled trades development and training. OPG’s Centre for Canadian Nuclear Sustainability has provided $500K to support the college’s Whitby Campus Expansion project, and Durham will train OPG employees in return. “In choosing to direct funds to the college’s latest capital project, which will see an additional 750 seats added at the Whitby campus, they are helping DC continue our tradition of educational excellence,” said Durham President Don Lovisa, “while also ensuring there is a pipeline of qualified graduates to support the success of the nuclear industry as a whole and help OPG achieve their organizational goals.” Durham (ON)
