What they're saying about us....
Board Chair, Ontario Tech University and Senior Vice-President, Enterprise Projects at Ontario Power Generation
“The Ontario Tech Talent Initiative will be of significant help to small- and medium-sized enterprises with their skills training needs. I also see the incredible value to large enterprises―all enterprises face the challenge of recruiting and retaining employees who have the evolving skills sets employers need. Ontario Power Generation looks forward to deepening our relationship with Ontario Tech through this initiative.”
Dr Steven Murphy
President and Vice-Chancellor, Ontario Tech University
“This new organization changes how we think about higher education’s role in essential skills, as we focus on our priority to re-imagine learning. We will work closely with industry to help our graduates be relevant today and throughout their careers. Co-creating this program with industry and community partners allows our students and alumni to become, and remain, job ready. A practical focus is in our DNA, and we are working hard to address the very real skills gap in Ontario and in Canada. We need all Canadians to think about learning in an entirely new and flexible fashion in order to be globally competitive.”
