NPower Canada has received a $2 million co-investment from DIGITAL, working together with Microsoft and the CIBC Foundation, to scale their Canadian Tech Talent Accelerator (CTTA).
Launched in January 2021, the CTTA has been at the forefront of Canada’s post-pandemic economic recovery efforts, helping to bridge the talent gap by providing underserved job-seekers with essential digital skills, certifications, and job placement support.
This initiative is designed to launch more than 6,000 job-seekers across Canada into meaningful careers in tech.
To date, the CTTA has enabled over 3,300 diverse job-seekers to enroll in NPower Canada’s workforce development program nationwide, with an impressive 80% of program graduates securing meaningful and sustainable employment within six months.
In this next phase of the CTTA, NPower Canada will leverage Microsoft’s best-in-class curricula to introduce an innovative skilling program in cybersecurity, while continuing to offer its existing core programs focused in Data Analytics and Visualization, IT Service Management, and Artificial Intelligence.
