Vancouver Community College and the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) are collaborating to address the increasing demand for heavy duty mechanics across the country. This collaboration will provide CAF personnel with heavy duty mechanical training while incentivizing civilian students to pursue a career in the military.

“Cultivating strong partnerships with industry leaders means we can prepare students for success in the workforce,” said VCC Acting Dean, School of Trades, Technology & Design Lucy Griffith. “We thank the Canadian Armed Forces for their collaboration and look forward to a long and productive partnership that provides military personnel with the skills and experience needed for a successful career in heavy mechanical trades.”
