Developing Human Capital

What We Support

Here are some of the ways we work with the region`s post-secondary institutions, graduates, researchers, and businesses to help create jobs in our region and share knowledge:

  • Sponsoring entrepreneurship centres and/or tech transfer centres at post-secondary institutions.
  • Providing matching contribution toward student internships focused on current business recovery needs such as digital adaptation, social media, market research, etc. eg. MITACS.
  • Hosting an annual get-together of post-secondary partners to discuss expanding links to industry and share best practices in entrepreneurship support.
  • Providing matching contributions toward student applied research projects for industry.

We work directly with the Post-Secondary Institutions to build these solutions. Contact us if you want to learn more.
