What our partners are saying

“The partnership between New Brunswick’s Center of Excellence Skilled Trades and Manufacturing and EMC is a game-changer for the future of our sector. The COE model enables students to explore careers and gain hands-on experience, connecting classroom learning with real-world manufacturing. For our consortiums in New Brunswick, it means a stronger, more prepared workforce right out of school with more responsive educators and employers. It’s a win-win, linking education with industry like never before.”
