Oshki-Wenjack Education Centre to provide skills training with mobile trailers

January 7, 2019

CBC reports that the Oshki-Wenjack Education Institute in Thunder Bay has acquired a new mobile trailer to provide skilled trades training for the 49 Nishnawbe Aski Nation communities in the north. “Our vision overall for these trailers is really to change the trend of industry of training our people just to be helpers,” said Institute Innovation and Training Coordinator Gordon Kakegamic, “and usually those types of jobs only last until the project is completed.” CBC adds that the program will include welding, carpentry, plumbing, electrical, mechanical and millwright training. CBC (ON)
