CICan announces program to bring skills for sustainable growth to rural, remote, northern communities


Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan) recently announced the Green Pathways for Small Communities (GPSC) program. Over the next nine months, GPSC will see colleges and institutes working with employers and community organizations to identify skills gaps and develop training for the transition to a green economy. Through these partnerships, over 120 individuals will receive free skills training. “As climate change poses its greatest threats to rural, remote, and northern communities, the launch of the Green Pathways for Small Communities (GPSC) program comes at a critical time,” said CICan President Denise Amyot. “With their extensive presence in these areas, colleges and institutes are uniquely positioned to play a pivotal role in developing sustainable solutions.”
