The government is looking to send an influx of jobs to the tech industry by investing in education.
Minister of Advanced Education Melanie Mark announced an initial 900 thousand dollars in funding that aims to help bring 370 additional tech seats to institutions accross the province.
The seats will be added to a range of, generally short, highly focused programs.
The additional seats are just part of the government’s new tech-expansion project, which will add 2,900 new seats by 2023.
The hope of the program is to add more than 83 thousand jobs to the tech industry by 2027.
