A moment with Marketa
Our colleges are making a tremendous difference filling the demand for more personal support workers. Starting last year, colleges have been offering fast-track, tuition-free programs that can be completed in six months rather than the standard timeframe of eight months.
Our next provincial government must work with colleges to recharge Ontario for this new age of accelerating automation and the transition to a cleaner economy.
