Mohawk College in Hamilton announced Monday (May 3) that it joined three other institutions in Canada in offering a new program that could contribute to the country’s economic recovery.


A partnership between four community colleges – Mohawk College, Red River College, Nova Scotia Community College, and Vancouver Community College – is bringing workforce training in goods movement and the supply chain sector to students across the country. The new program is an expansion of the training model used by Mohawk’s City School initiative, which combines industry-driven training, individualized support, and practical work experience. Over 200 people will receive training through the Material Handling 4.0 pilot program, which includes industry-specific instruction, a two-week paid work placement, wrap-around supports such as childcare and PPE, and referrals to support services.
