Reviewing the 2017/2018 capital budget, and just confirmed that the “Trades Training Capital” budget for education on PEI will remain static – or “in maintenance mode” as I call it – at $250,000 per year. Really no new expansions planned.
Trades are in high demand in the workplace, and there are many students that have aptitudes and interest in these areas. In the interest of economic improvements and student success, I would like to see more investment in trade-based education.
