The “Pathways to Shipbuilding” indigenous education and apprenticeship program is something we can all be very proud of. Canadians from coast to coast to coast support the National Shipbuilding Strategy. We’re rebuilding our marine industry while supporting technological innovation and helping build our economy.
So far through projects like this, more than 1,500 Indigenous individuals have received training in the marine industry. This program is made possible through the support of many partners, notably, Irving Shipbuilding, The Mi’kmaw Native Friendship Centre, Nova Scotia Community College – NSCC, the Governments of Canada and Nova Scotia, Unifor and GECanada!
The graduates from the Pathways to Shipbuilding program represent the future of shipbuilding in Canada. Their hard work in this industry will leave a legacy for Canada’s Navy.
