Future Skills Centre Invests $25.9 Million To Expand 10 Portfolio Projects
The Future Skills Centre (FSC) has invested $25.9 million CAD in 10 of its most promising projects to date, as the hub aims to strengthen skills development initiatives across Canada to support workers and employers during COVID-19 and post-pandemic. All of these skills development projects were previously funded by FSC, and according to the centre, have shown “early signs of success and the potential for wider impact.” FSC said it based its assessment on such metrics as strong or accelerated completion rates and good job placement statistics. The organization also works closely with tech companies to ensure the programming is up to date with industry needs. This means the talent coming out of the program is always well-equipped for the ever-changing workforce.
