Insignia receives funding to provide newcomers with veterinary assistant training

Insignia College will be receiving funding from the Government of British Columbia to provide 36 immigrants with veterinary assistant training. Insignia will offer the veterinary assistant training program to eligible newcomers over three intakes. In addition to skills training, those in the program will complete local work experience and receive job search support. “We are excited about this opportunity given to British Columbians to complete skills training and work experience with enhanced support,” said Insignia CEO Sahaj Sandhu. “This funding will not only support the workforce shortages in veterinary industry, but also prepare the candidates for in-demand and higher-paying jobs.” BC is providing almost $500K in funding to the initiative through the Community and Employer Partnerships project.
