Yukon College drops general mechanics program

September 18, 2008

Yukon College has cancelled its general mechanics program because of a lack of interest, despite a seemingly high demand for mechanics in the territory. While the college's other trades programs are full, the mechanics program had just 1 applicant by August. The college is contacting schools in northern BC and Alberta to see if similar programs are experiencing dropping enrolment. The college is considering overhauling its trades programs, in part by envisioning what industry demands would be like in 5 years. CBC
