Skills Canada Newfoundland and Labrador (SCNL) is partnering with College of the North Atlantic (CNA) to offer tuition opportunities to secondary and current post-secondary students, and financial support to graduating students, who demonstrate excellence in Skills Canada competitions.

Over the next five years, the program will provide entrance awards for secondary students of Newfoundland and Labrador enrolling at CNA campuses province-wide, as well as for current post- secondary students continuing their higher education.

“This five-year agreement to offer tuition support to students who successfully place in national and provincial competitions means that more students will find open doors to their futures.” said Christine Greene, President of SCNL. “Thank you to College of the North Atlantic for their partnership as we continue to strive for excellence in supporting our youth and all the best to all participants in Skills Canada programs.”

“College of the North Atlantic is proud to partner with SCNL to ensure that our province’s youth have opportunities to further their education and pursue their passions when it comes to skilled trades,” said Brent Howell, CNA’s Dean of Engineering Technology and Industrial Trades. “Since we piloted this funding program a few years ago, we have made more than $40,000 available through tuition vouchers and monetary awards. We look forward to continuing this and doing more, as a solid post- secondary education paves the way for a prosperous career. CNA is built on the idea of students first and fostering a dynamic and inclusive learning and training environment.”
