Canada announces over $30M in jobs, training for youth in STEM, natural resource sectors


The Government of Canada has announced an over-$30M investment in job-creation and training opportunities for youth in STEM and related natural resource sector fields that are focused on positive environmental outcomes. Nine organizations—including Colleges and Institutes Canada—will create 960 green jobs and training opportunities designed to provide young people with on-the-job experience in energy, forestry, mining, earth sciences and clean technology sectors. “Whether it’s building electric vehicles, mapping clean energy sites or managing our growing smart-grids, the interns and trainees we are supporting today will be the leaders of tomorrow,” said Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Natural Resources and to the Minister of Environment and Climate Change Julie Dabrusin. “A net-zero future means many more sustainable jobs, and today’s investment is an important step toward creating them.”
