The Problems NPower Canada Addresses
NPower Canada is a charitable workforce development organization that prepares underserved and barriered youth for successful careers in the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) field. NPower Canada addresses two major problems faced in the GTA.
Many eager, talented and capable young people lack the skills and/or access needed to launch successful careers, limiting their opportunity to participate in the future workforce and build a strong financial future. There are over 83,000 youth in the GTHA not employed, in education or in training.

There are many organizations across the GTHA that have unfilled, entry level ICT jobs. By 2021, approximately 216,000 new ICT jobs will need to be filled.
