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.

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.
