Minister Michael Gravelle announces investment for a ‘TEC’ Hub at Confederation College


The Ontario Provincial Government announced in the 2016 Budget, the building of the Technology Education and Collaboration Hub in Thunder Bay will offer students preparatory, apprenticeship, trades and technology programs in a single location. This will expand training opportunities in Thunder Bay and help develop an employment-ready technology and trades workforce for Northern Ontario. “Exposure to multiple fields of study within the same facility will allow students to develop the diverse skills they need to compete for jobs in Ontario’s manufacturing, technology, and resource sectors.The Technology Education and Collaboration Hub is part of the largest investment in public infrastructure in the province’s history — about $160 billion over 12 years, which is supporting 110,000 jobs every year across the province, with projects such as roads, bridges, transit systems, schools and hospitals. In 2015, the province announced support for more than 325 projects that will keep people and goods moving, connect communities and improve quality of life.”
