UCN, MB collaborate on training pathways to support minerals strategy


The Government of Manitoba recently announced the Manitoba Critical Minerals Strategy, which includes several initiatives to enhance the mining workforce. The University College of the North will play a critical role in the strategy by providing workforce training. UCN will provide workers from the north with flexible, in-demand training pathways to gain the skills needed to work in mining and minerals. The strategy also suggested that MB will support partnerships with postsecondary institutions to develop new training opportunities such as certificates and micro-credentials, establish a fund to support geoscience work at postsecondary institutions, and create dedicated scholarships.
