Ontario is investing in renewed and renovated facilities and equipment at St. Clair College’s main campus that will better equip students with the skills they need for the jobs of today and tomorrow.
The investment from the province and the federal government will allow St. Clair College to improve the sustainable delivery of post secondary, apprentice and pre-apprentice programs and to enhance research and innovation at the institution’s main campus. Renovations include HVAC systems, electrical renewals and mechanical repairs to facilities, including the replacement of electrical transformers.
As well, a new National Powerline Training Centre at the Thames Campus will create 8,000 square feet of additional flexible learning space that will house the powerline technician program, and provide learning opportunities in various skilled trades and technologies that are in demand across Canada.
“Our government is proud to support this important project to give St. Clair College students access to modern and energy-efficient facilities. We know that providing access to high-quality education and training facilities is critical to building the highly skilled workforce we need to support good jobs and economic growth for today and tomorrow, and this investment will help us to do it,” said Deb Matthews, Ontario’s Deputy Premier, Minister of Advanced Education and Skills Development, and Minister Responsible for Digital Government.
