WINDSOR, ONT. — Students at St. Clair College in Windsor will benefit from renewed and renovated learning facilities and new equipment thanks to a boost from the federal and provincial governments.
The investment will allow St. Clair College to improve the sustainable delivery of post-secondary, apprentice and pre-apprentice programs and to enhance research and innovation at the institution's main campus, states a government release issued Jan. 9. Renovations include HVAC systems, electrical renewals and mechanical repairs to facilities, including the replacement of electrical transformers.
As well, a new National Powerline Training Centre at the Thames Campus will create 8,000 square feet of additional learning space that will house the powerline technician program and provide learning opportunities in various skilled trades and technologies, adds the release.
The overall cost to complete these projects is approximately $7.8 million, and includes $3.8 million from Canada's Strategic Investment Fund, $1.6 million from Ontario and $1.6 million from St. Clair College.
