There’s an urgent need for more health-care workers. In the next 30 years, the number of Canadians over the age of 85 is expected to triple and the demand for health-care workers will increase.
The fully subsidized supportive care assistant training program, funded by Employment and Social Development Canada, was created to address the acute labour shortages in the long-term and home care sector.
Participants will complete six weeks of online training and a paid work placement. Graduates will be eligible to apply for a $5,000 stipend to take the next step and become a fully credentialed Health Care Assistant through further studies.
Do you want to learn in-demand skills, get practical work experience, and make a difference in your community?
