OUR MODEL

The Problems NPower Canada Addresses

Our programs provide participants with free in-demand digital and professional skills training, and connects them to new and rewarding career opportunities with some of Canada’s largest employers. Through consultation with a wide range of employers, NPower Canada’s comprehensive curriculum ensures participants are equipped with the in-demand technical and professional skills most sought after by industry.


Problem #1


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 more than 860,000 youth across Canada between the ages of 15 and 29 who are not working, studying or participating in some form of training.Source: CivicAction, Now Hiring Report, 2018


Problem #2


There are many organizations across Canada that have unfilled, entry level ICT jobs. Despite an additional 61,000+ tech workers last year Canadian companies posted job openings for 116,000 tech positions.Source: Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) Cyberprovinces, 2019

NPower Canada bridges the gap between non-traditional and diverse job seekers and employers hiring ICT talent.
