More Seats in Healthcare and Skilled Trades — $24.5 million

  • Reducing waitlists for programs in skilled trades, health professions, early learning, information technology, and alternative energy.
  • Investing $24.5 million over 3 years to add 800 additional students each year.
  • Creating 400 seats in high demand disciplines in the health sector, including 270 new seats for Licensed Practical Nurses.
  • Creating 400 seats in residential construction trades, IT, and green energy programs.

The jobs created by constructing more housing, expanding childcare, delivering quality healthcare, and building our clean energy future will require a major boost to our skilled workforce. NSCC programs for skilled trades, health professions, early learning, information technology, and alternative energy have long waitlists. Reducing the waitlists for these programs will put more Nova Scotians to work in these growing sectors.

New programming for artificial intelligence, automation, immersive technology, and green technology will open new pathways, labour pools, and additional opportunities for Nova Scotian workers.

A $3 million investment in year one will increase to $12 million by year 3, adding 800 additional students each year — 400 of which will be dedicated to high demand disciplines in the health sector, including 270 new seats for Licensed Practical Nurses. An additional 400 spaces for residential construction trades, information technology, and green energy programs will allow employers to access the skilled labour required to support continued growth in burgeoning fields.
