Fanshawe, Royal Roads, United College, Queen’s, Trent partner with BHER to develop net-zero workforce


The Business + Higher Education Roundtable (BHER) recently announced a series of partnerships that will develop work-integrated learning (WIL) pathways in support of a net-zero future. Among BHER’s new partners are Fanshawe College, Royal Roads University, United College (University of Waterloo), Queen’s University, and Trent University. The partnerships aim to develop a highly skilled net-zero workforce by providing relevant WIL experiences to students across Canada. Partnerships will support transforming workforces in energy-intensive regions, attracting green talent in priority sectors and in small- and medium-sized municipalities, supporting students launching climate ventures, and fostering cross-institutional collaboration.
