(NORTH BAY, ONT.)- On Tuesday, Hard Hat Hunter (www.hardhathunter.com) will proudly announce its educational partnership with Canadore College.
Canada is experiencing a critical shortage of skilled trades workers. The demand for these workers is compounded by an aging workforce. There is a strong need for new highly skilled workers. Canadore College, located in North Bay, Ontario, provides programs and facilities that offer students specific training to acquire transferable skills for the industry.
Canadore’s trades training programs and facilities are an ideal educational partner for Hard Hat Hunter:
“Hard Hat Hunter aims to combat the skills shortage by encouraging participation in the skilled trades and construction sectors while providing members, including students, apprentices, workers, and business owners, with resources and networking opportunities further advance their industry positions,” said Edgar Goulais, president of Hard Hat Hunter and Canadore College alumnus. “Our goal is to facilitate member networking for the purpose of connection, communication, and collaboration. We see our partnership with Canadore as a valuable asset not only to its students and Hard Hat Hunter members, but to the skilled trades and construction industry as a whole. We feel that this partnership will bring students greater access to industry leaders and employers, thus enabling them to secure a strong future for their career in the skilled trades and construction industry. We are thrilled to align ourselves with Canadore College in the support of these sectors.”
“When we were approached by Hard Hat Hunter about being their official educational partner, it was an easy step to take,” said Shawn Chorney, vice-president of enrolment management, indigenous and student services. “Canadore maintains a focus on entrepreneurship and the skilled trades, and most importantly, careers for our graduates. Hard Hat Hunter is a useful resource in the success tool kit that we provide our students.”
Canadore College students will create educational content to be featured on a weekly basis on the Hard Hat Hunter platform.
