Are you or do you know someone who is interested in a career in the trades? If so, the Career Path Bursary Program presented by Optimum Mechanical is for you!
In a recent report Colleges Ontario forecasted that by 2030 the province will face a skilled labour shortage of more than 500,000 workers. This shortage is being primarily driven by the fact that 40 per cent of the skilled trades workforce is expected to retire within the next 10 to 15 years.
RA partner, Optimum Mechanical recognizes these coming labour issues and believes that they have a role to play in supporting young people as they enter into skilled trades programs. In order to do this, Optimum Mechanical, along with the RA have created this once a year bursary program, worth $500, to assist an applicant in moving their trades industry training forward.
The Career Path Bursary Program presented by Optimum Mechanical, valued at $500, is aimed at supporting a young person with financial support that they can put towards a trades program at Algonquin College or other post-secondary institution or a certified apprenticeship program.
