Canada Learning Code partners with Google to bring digital skills training to adults nationwide.
Canada Learning Code and Google have teamed up to connect more individuals with the resources and tools to expand their skills and career opportunities, through Google’s new initiative: Grow with Google.
With Google’s support, Canada Learning Code will expand and scale our existing digital skills programming to bring more workshops, in-person training, and one-on-one sessions to communities across Canada, covering topics suited to small business owners and entrepreneurs looking to scale their business and individuals interested in growing their skills. Canada Learning Code’s expanded set of learning experiences are set to launch across Canada in the spring of 2019. Keystone programming will be offered in Iqaluit (NU); St. Johns (NL); Surrey (BC), Edmonton (AB), Hamilton (ON), and Sherbrooke (QC), through partnerships with local libraries and organizations.
“Technology is the key to opportunity, which is why we are launching Grow with Google in Canada,” said Sabrina Geremia, Country Director, Google Canada. “By making our resources available to everyone online, by bringing hands-on training into communities across the country, and by partnering with organizations like Canada Learning Code who are devoted to expanding access to digital tools and training, we can help Canadians grow their skills, their opportunities, and their futures.”
“Digital skills are tools of empowerment,” says Melissa Sariffodeen, Chief Executive Officer at Canada Learning Code. “Our vision is a Canada in which all people have the knowledge and confidence to harness the power of technology to achieve economic and personal fulfillment. Our partnership with Grow with Google puts us one step closer to achieving that vision by allowing us to offer new content and scale our existing coding and digital literacy curriculum to more Canadians.”
