Today, Deb Matthews, MPP London North Centre, was at Fanshawe College where she announced that the province is investing a combined $4.2 million through the Apprenticeship Enhancement Fund and Pre-Apprenticeship Training programs to help the next generation of skilled tradespeople in London and the surrounding area access the training, equipment and facilities they need to prepare for the workforce.
"I’m proud our government is making a major investment to ensure London and area apprentices receive the highest standard of training. This investment will give apprentices the hands-on experience they need to thrive in the skilled trades, and contribute to our economy.”

“Apprentices are an important part of a highly-trained workforce and the combination of classroom instruction with workplace experience ensures our graduates are job-ready. This funding will help Fanshawe update our equipment, ensuring our students are learning in a state-of-the-art facility,” said Fanshawe President Peter Devlin. “We thank the Government of Ontario for their support of Fanshawe College and our apprenticeship programs.”

“Our government always talks about the importance of Building Ontario Up, and our talented skilled tradespeople are literally doing that in every corner of our province, including London Ontario’s apprenticeship training system, supported by employers, colleges and unions, is a crucial part of our plan to build the highly-skilled workforce we need to compete, and I’m proud that we are supporting so many projects that will bring new equipment and high demand training programs to the local markets that need it.”
