Alberta investing over $1 million in Keyano College

The Government of Alberta is investing $1.3 million in Keyano College through the Alberta at Work initiative.

Through this investment, the Government is hoping to support Alberta’s labour market now and in the future, and to give students more opportunities to gain the skills and training they need to enter the workforce.

“As a former instructor at Keyano College, I know how important these northeastern Alberta colleges are to their communities,” said Brian Jean, MLA for Fort McMurray – Lac La Biche.

“An increased investment in health-care professionals training and then working in northeastern Alberta is one of the most important things our government can do for Alberta’s future.”

Around 96 new seats at Keyano College will be available through the targeted enrolment expansion program which includes the health care aide and the primary care paramedicine certificate programs.

“The events of the last two years have clearly indicated the need for more and more healthcare-related workers, positions, and opportunities,” noted Jay Notay, President and CEO of Keyano College.

“This significant funding of $1.3 million to Keyano from the Alberta at Work program will allow our students of the health care aide and the primary care paramedicine certificate programs to have an opportunity to participate in a program designed to meet the needs of the current labour market.”
