UNB, McKenna Institute, Tech Impact strike partnership to address tech labour shortage

The University of New Brunswick, the McKenna Institute, and TechImpact have partnered to address the tech industry labour shortage. A study conducted on behalf of the Government of New Brunswick found that over 1,900 IT positions will need to be filled in the province in the next year alone. “Leveraging technology across our economy, educational system, and government is key to our region’s prosperity and growth,” says Adrienne O’Pray, executive director of the McKenna Institute. “This partnership opens the door for individuals in New Brunswick – who may not have otherwise had the opportunity – to participate in the digital economy and the digitally enabled workplace.” Tech Impact| UNB Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
