Humber receives $16.5M from ON to expand PSW training program for long-term care


Humber College will expand its personal support worker (PSW) training program for long-term care, thanks to a $16.5M investment over three years from the Government of Ontario. Humber’s Learn and Earn Accelerated Program for PSWs in Long-Term Care (LEAP LTC) was first launched in 2022 with the goal of upskilling employees at long-term care homes to become PSWs. The new funding will enable Humber to train up to 600 new PSWs over the next three years under this program. “By helping people become certified PSWs while working, and enabling employers to fill existing PSW vacancies, we can strengthen the healthcare workforce and make a positive impact on the lives of Ontarians,” said Humber President Ann Marie Vaughan.
