Province invests $7 million in Trades Training

VANCOUVER – The Province has announced today that it has invested,

through the Industry Training Authority (ITA), $7 million in Vancouver

Community College (VCC) for trades training through to March 31, 2017,

to meet industry needs and ensure quality training in high priority


In response to the objectives outlined in B.C.’s Skills for Jobs

Blueprint and the McDonald Report, the B.C. government has worked in

partnership with the ITA to begin building a demand-driven trades

training system with funding aligned to specific high priority trades.

With the government’s $7-million investment, the ITA will fund 1,870

trades training seats at Vancouver Community College in:


* Automotive Service Technician

* Heavy Mechanical

* Baker

* Professional Cook

* Commercial Transport Mechanic


The provincial government also highlighted the innovative partnership

that Vancouver Community College has developed with White Spot

Restaurants. Each year, White Spot selects cohorts of students from VCC

to train at White Spot’s state of the art culinary training facility in

Vancouver. This makes White Spot the only hospitality company in the

province to be formally accredited to deliver Professional Cook

Training 1 and 2. Students in the White Spot Culinary program return to

VCC to complete Professional Cook Training 3 and become Red Seal


“It is a pleasure to see outstanding B.C. businesses like White Spot,
with its headquarters right here in Vancouver-Fraserview, develop
partnerships with post-secondary institutions to create this win-win
situation, Says Suzanne Anton, MLA for Vancouver-Fraserview-
“This approach works – students are happy to receive hands-on
experience with a renowned business leader, and employers are training
professionals that they can retain for years to come.”

The provincial government invests more than $94 million in industry

training through the ITA. The ITA leads and co-ordinates British

Columbia’s skilled trades system by working with employers, employees,

industry, labour, training providers and government to issue

credentials, manage apprenticeships, set program standards and increase

opportunities in the trades.
