Ontario Colleges has this report on how colleges are helping drive the province’s transition to a sustainable economy by training graduates for new “green-collar jobs” in areas such as renewable energy and waste water management. The report, Colleges Driving a Sustainable Future: New Careers for a Clean Economy, says 35 new programs have been introduced provincewide in the past three years. These new programs help produce employees who are ready for innovations in everything from green business management to alternative energy engineering technology. Mohawk's partnership with Hydro One is one of the programs cited in the report.
