NORTH VANCOUVER – New Democrat MLA Susie Chant says students will gain hands-on skills thanks to new technology and trades equipment upgrades at Capilano University.

“Part of building back a stronger B.C. includes investing in our students,” said Susie Chant, MLA for North Vancouver – Seymour. “Students at Capilano University now have the opportunity to learn with the most up-to-date technology and equipment, ensuring students can improve their skills, while better preparing them for their future careers.”

Capilano University will receive up to $150,000 to support new equipment and technology for programs such as 2D Animation & Visual Development, 3D Animation for Film & Games, Clean Technology, Digital Visual Effects and Engineering.

Capilano University is one of 20 institutions across the province that are each receiving up to $150,000 to buy equipment for trades and technology programs, with a total government investment of $3 million. Public post-secondary institutions will replace obsolete equipment and acquire up-to-date technology, which will ensure students’ training remains relevant and meets the needs of employers.

Investing in advanced education and skills training for people is part of the New Democrat government’s plan to build back a stronger B.C. for everyone.
