QC provides $4M to support IT education, training

January 19, 2021
The Government of Quebec has announced $4M in funding to support those who are interested in pursuing an education in information technology. The funding is meant to address the need for skilled professionals to fill empty IT roles and is expected to give 500 people the chance to pursue short-term college or university IT programs. The program is geared toward those who have lost their jobs during the COVID-19 pandemic and need to expand their skills through further education. The funding comes as part of a broader $19M investment in training and recruiting IT staff. CBC (QC)
