Providence, Canadian North partner on new program to train Inuit students as pilots


Providence University College has forged an educational agreement with Canadian North Airlines to train Inuit students as pilots who will serve northern communities. Under the agreement, students will complete either a Bachelor of Arts in Aviation or a double major in Aviation and Business Administration, while learning skills that will prepare them to operate in the North. Graduates of the program will receive conditional offers of employment from Canadian North. “We believe we can be part of the solution to Canada’s chronic pilot shortage to enhance the lives of people in the far north,” said Providence President Kent Anderson.
