Canada Boosting EV Tech Education
April 1, 2021—The province of British Columbia announced the growth of electric vehicle technician programs from one to four technical colleges.
Grants of $440,000 will go to Okanagan College’s Kelowna campus, College of New Caledonia’s Prince George campus and Camosun College’s Interurban campus in Victoria. The British Columbia Institute of Technology’s Burnaby campus hosted the first courses.
“The expansion of the EV Maintenance Training program will help grow our EV sector and make it even easier for British Columbians to make the switch to an EV, putting us on the road to a cleaner, better future," said said Bruce Ralston, Minister of Energy, Mines and Low Carbon Innovation, in a press release.
